Revolting Rhymes gets Oscar nod

A Cape Town animation studio can boast with an Academy Award nomination for 2018!

The short film adapted from Roald Dahl's classic Revolting Rhymes, was produced by Magic Light Pictures in Berlin, and animated in part at the Triggerfish Animation Studios in Cape Town.

It has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film. The two-part film puts a spin on Roald Dahl’s book, intertwining five of the six poems.
