Two city animators have scooped a Bafta for a short film they made as a graduation project.

Film-makers Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson rubbed shoulders with Hollywood greats Daniel Day-Lewis and Quentin Tarantino before taking the short animation gong at the awards ceremony in London’s Royal Opera House last night.

Their film The Making of Londbird is a fake documentary mixing live action and animation which tells the story of a has-been Russian cartoon bird trying to make a comeback.
