Crouch End pupil Jude Rogers beat stiff competition to win an award for his film at BFI Southbank.
The 13-year-old’s stop-motion animation film Ashta and the Dragon won the best animation in the 13 and over category at the Into Film Awards 2018 last Tuesday 13 March.
Jude said: “I was really nervous. My heart was beating. When they said my name I was so shocked.”
The film’s plot revolves around a boy who meets a dragon called Gruff and comes face to face with a ‘dark force’.
The Wren Academy schoolboy began with the challenge of fitting a feature film into only one minute. It took him two months to shoot the 60 second piece, taking 24 pictures for each second of footage.
