First Year NFTS Animation Student Wins Best Student Film at Manchester Animation Festival

Cabin Pressure, a film made by NFTS first year Directing Animation MA student, Matthew Lee, has won ‘Best Student Film’ at this year’s Manchester Animation Festival. The film was made as part of a first year project on ‘Character’ where the Directing Animation MA students collaborate with the Screenwriting MA students to develop characters and write a story about them meeting.

About Cabin Pressure: A safety and regulations obsessive is forced to revaluate things when a routine flight runs into difficulties.

The jury commented: “For its brilliant characterisation, great use of form and material, it is a perfectly crafted little story.”

Matthew Lee said: “It’s a huge honour to win Best Student Film at the Manchester Animation Festival, especially with a film I made as part of a first year project.”
