Huge congratulations to former Wyke A Level Media Studies, Drama & Theatre and English Language student Anna Bant who’s short film, Abode, won ‘Best Student Short’ at The London Short Film Festival and has been nominated for two more festivals this week.
Anna, who came to Wyke from Beverley High, produced her film as part of her studies on the BA (Hons) Cinematography and Film/Video Production degree at the Northern School of Arts, Leeds.
Abode is a drama short film following a young girl, Becky Bromwell, escaping her abusive partner. After confronting her friend, she finds herself venturing the streets in rejection from society. This leads to her questioning where her humble abode really is. Anna says, “As a crew we worked hard in preparation and production for this film, including the isolation of cast and crew members at different times due to Covid. We were able to overcome this and continue to create a cinematic film.”
