And, The Oscar Goes To… “The Tree Officer”

The Tree Officer, Gary Dremmel

“And now, in the category of best animated short, the winner is, The Tree Officer.” Could an arborist be recognized with an Oscar at next year’s awards ceremony? You be the judge.
“The Tree Officer,” an animated (claymation) short film by Neil Jack comes to us thanks to the BBC’s Film Network.
Set in a Scottish Tree Officer’s Department within the town council, it focuses on the day-to-day running of the office, and in particular the Tree Officer, Gary Dremmel.

Passionate about botany and horticulture, Gary is wearied by the endless requests from the town’s citizens for trees to be cut down. Resigned to his fate, he signs his daily quota of death warrants with an air of droll melancholy, assisted by his two colleagues: Matt, a sardonic temp with a stapling addiction; and Avril, a dedicated worker with an unreliable arm and a dysfunctional relationship with technology.
