Ruth Brooks was awarded this year’s Digital Animation Bursary. Ruth’s film ‘Little Songs of Childhood’ “explores childhood obsessions with the morbid and macabre” and uses live footage, pixilation, stop-motion and rotoscoping techniques to create a piece that, while referencing the trademark styles of Jan Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay and the Brothers Grimm tale ‘Fitcher’s Bird’, has a distinct style of its own.
