A GROUP of budding filmmakers from Solihull College have scooped the Best Animation award at the Staffordshire Film Festival.

The moving two minute film, ‘One More Day (with you),’ follows the short life of a young boy as he jumps in and out of a newspaper, inspired by the opening credits of BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News.

Taking over four months to complete, the second year media students Laura-Jane Gregory, Rhiannon Lloyd and Jessie Doyle wanted to use the film to highlight the importance of spending time with siblings.

Laura-Jane said she was shocked to win saying the group had taken ‘a huge gamble’ to tell such an emotional tale.

“We really wanted to connect with the audience and decided that featuring a child was the way to do this,” said the 18-year-old.
