British film wins Student Oscar

A British short animation has won the top prize in the foreign film category at the 40th Student Academy Awards.

The body that hands out the Oscars honoured Kristina Yee’s film, Miss Todd, with a gold medal at a ceremony at the Academy’s headquarters in Beverly Hills. She received the award from the actor and director Clark Gregg.

Miss Todd is a stop-frame musical about the first woman to design and build an aeroplane. Yee made it at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire, where last year’s Oscar-nominated short animation Head Over Heels was also made.

Previous winners of the Student Academy Awards have gone on to secure forty six Oscar nominations – and eight wins.
