Bad Bugs (Student short, 2:06 min., ages 5-12)

10 year old Bryn made a claymation movie about the importance of using "natural solutions for your bug problems" - something she's passionate about. The idea came after one of her "grub hunting" sessions (she loves gathering grubs for the birds and lizards). She loves gardening almost as much as animation, so it was a perfect fit.

Juror comments: Bad Bugs * 10-year-old Bryn made a claymation movie about the importance of using "natural solutions for your bug problems" - something she's passionate about. The idea came after one of her "grub hunting" sessions. She loves gardening almost as much as animation, so it was a perfect fit.
The animation was awarded the "Grand Recognition Award" at the "Ivie Awards" in San Diego California. The video is currently being shared by many in the gardening community, who are encouraging Bryn to enter the film into festivals (because it's both educational and hilarious). Thank you for your consideration.
I love this little claymation short by a ten year old.

The film offers natural solutions to bug problems.

It is made using claymation and very cleverly so. The voice over is pretty good, and the narrator’s voice clearly enunciates. My biggest complaint is that I wish it was longer. I think it’s very clever and smart.

The message is about using natural solutions rather than pesticides to deal with bugs in your garden.

I give Bad Bugs 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
