Phungus & Mowld Wins ‘Best Animated Short‘ at Phoenix Short Film Festival

Dec 1, 2020

Pixelblast Animation is delighted that the Phungus & Mowld pilot episode has won its first award at the Phoenix Monthly Short Film Festival in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Directed by Kilian Muster, his first attempt at creating an animated film is already recognized by the jury awarding the pilot episode ‘Best Animated Short’ at the festival. The episode introduces the main characters Phungus, Mowld and ALIS. Phungus daydreams in his little bar in the middle of nowhere, when an escape pod crashes right in front of him. Mowld, emerging from the wreckage turns out to be a fugitive, and with the Imperial guard storming the place, both end up on the run.

“I am taken by surprise that people even consider my first and humble attempt at animation to be worthwhile, let alone award material” said Kilian Muster. “I am immensely happy to find that these 20 months of work turn out to be well worth doing”.
