Ashbourne's very own Charli Eglinton has won Best Short Film at the WJEC EDUQAS Moving Image Awards for her production of '8'.
The Moving Image Awards is a national competition, designed in partnership with the British Film Institute, recognises and rewards the UK's most talented young film-makers.
‘8’ is an excerpt from a longer feature. Ashamed of being the eldest son of a 1920’s mafia family, Ed has run away to start a new life alone, but doesn’t plan on his younger brother, Valentin, tracking him down, plunging Ed back into the mafia realm… just not in a way either of them expect.
“I animated the film using photoshop and a graphic tablet, recoloured on Premier Pro and then edited together on Imovie. I composed an original score for the film which I recorded and fully orchestrated using Logic Pro. The voiceovers were performed by myself and a friend. ” – Charlotte Eglinton
Charli graduated from Ashbourne in 2018. She was a scholarship student who stood out for her outstanding academic performance. She studied Music, Film and English Literature while at Ashbourne.
We are immensely proud of Charli's achievement. You can watch '8' below.
