“Bird Island: The Story of Isla Rasa” has won the Best Non-Broadcast Program award at the 34th Annual International Wildlife Film Festival, with an additional Merit Award for Animation.
Crazybridge created the animated main title sequence, as well as other animations for the short film.
The tiny island of Isla Rasa in the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico is much smaller than Central Park, but is home to millions of migratory birds each spring. In fact, nearly the entire world population of Heermann’s Gulls and Elegant Terns lives on the island between April and July. Beautifully photographed and written, the film traces Isla Rasa’s history, from guano mining to current conservation efforts.
The 2011 International Wildlife Film Festival runs May 7-14 in Missoula, Montana. “Bird Island” screens Saturday May 7 at 10am at the Missouri Theater and again on Tuesday May 10 at 9:30am at the Wilma Theater.
Congratulations to producers Sara Poisson and Alberto Montaudon!
