The Making Of
Winner of 2020 New Designers Screening Award, supported by the Aardman Academy
I was blown away by the winning film Something Borrowed by Micky Wozny. It stood out as being a stunning example of a heartwarming story where every little detail was perfectly thought through. From the moment which kicked it all off, to the unique transitions between scenes and the overall colour palette. The director tells the story of a familiar subject in a way I’ve never seen before and the result is a work of art. It’s a beautiful short that I think will springboard this director onto many great projects in the future.
