Jericho wins Best Animation at Melrose Festival

Many congratulations to director Sarah Andrews and the makers of the short film Jericho, completed by our third year undergraduate animation students, which has won Best Animation at the the Melrose Film Festival in Orlando, Florida.

Jericho is a short film about a lonely robot searching for a friend. It was shortlisted for a student BAFTA, and won Best Animation and Best VFX at the Nexus Film Festival earlier this year.

Jericho will be screened along with Home Sweet Home at the London Film Festival at the BFI on Saturday, October 5th
