Hot off the press is the news that a Lincolnshire student has claimed first prize in the students film section of Aurora 2007. Here is a pleasing synopsis of Our Footsteps In The Leaves by the National Film and Television School's Benjamin Sanders :
We struck out on that slow silent walk
And the wind carried with us
A few leaves from the bed
The link is to the website of sound designer Ayush Ahuja. An alternative minute's viewing may be obtained here. Benjamin initially studied graphic design at Norwich School of Art and Design, specialising after one year in animation. Footsteps is clearly hand drawn with some ravishing touches of brown, pink and subtle olive tones. I can envisage a career in commercials for someone of his exquisite touch. I have not seen the full movie only clips so am unable to explain the plot; it appears pretty much a mood piece however.
