The Astronomers Sun now online!

I'm delighted to announce that after an amazing festival run, “The Astronomers Sun” is now available to view online!

Thanks to Adam Kirk for uploading the film to the Duchy Parade Films YouTube page in breathtaking HD, and for updating the website on which it now resides. We hope this will find a new audience, and we encourage you all to promote it and tell the world!

The Astronomers Sun has had a terrific festival run, playing in over 70 festivals around the world, and embraced both critically and by audiences and winning 16 awards to date. It’s broken Screen Yorkshires record as their most successful animated short film by quite a stretch. It’s a testament to everyone who worked on this film and did so much to make it what it is – to Simon and Jess, and the entire production team who helped bring it to the screen. Major thanks also has to go to Peter Kershaw who has along with me, been promoting it at festivals for going on for two years now and Adam Kirk who has been sending copies of the film in various screening formats to festivals around the world.

Thanks eveyone for supporting us.

  1. My Year 5 class have been watching The Astronomer's Sun and they absolutely love it. They are going to be writing a short narrative using images from the animation to explain their interpretation of the film.

    Would it be possible to send a few copies of their finished work to the people involved in creating this animation and for them to send the children some feedback?

    They've got some great ideas and I think it will really encourage them with their writing and creativity and if they could have some feedback from professionals. Most of the children need encouragement to write and use their imaginations so i'd be very grateful and i know how enthusiastic it would make them.

    Hope to hear back from you soon, thankyou
