A BA (Hons) Animation Production graduate has had one of her films broadcast by Channel 4

Sookie Lalla’s three-minute video, Residue, was commissioned by Random Acts, Channel 4’s short film strand dedicated to the arts and funded by the Arts Council.

According to Channel 4, Residue “fuses film, animation and dance to explore how trauma can cause a person to dissociate from the real world”.

And Sookie says she found out about Random Acts through another animator early last year and decided to pitch a short film that combined live-action film and animation to portray the residual effects of trauma.

She said: “It was an incredible opportunity to learn, grow and experiment without fear or restrictions. Having the support of Bafta-winning animation director Emma Lazenby and director of photography Sarah Edwards was absolutely invaluable.

“The people I met, the conversations exchanged and exposure to new ideas, during my time at AUB has moulded me into the artist I am today.”
