BAFTA short film successes

9 February 2009

Two films by Bristol graduates featured in last night’s [8 February] BAFTA awards ceremony.

September, by Esther May Campbell (BA 1995), won a BAFTA for Best Short Film. You can watch Esther receive the award and talk about the film on the BAFTA website.

Codswallop, by Myles McLeod (BSc 1996, MSc 2000) and his brother Greg, was nominated for Best Short Animation. The Brothers McLeod were picked as the winning post by former BAFTA-winning king of animation, Nick Park, with his film Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death.

September also won Best British Film at last year’s Encounters International Festival in Bristol. The Brothers McLeod's previous successes include working on BBC’s Pedro and Frankensheep, the Skittles viral advertising campaign and MTV's Fuggy Fuggy.
