BAFTA-Winning “The Making of Longbird” Is Now Online

Will Anderson directed and animated The Making of Longbird as his graduation film at the Edinburgh College of Art. The fifteen-minute mockumentary-style short about a forgotten Russian cartoon character from 1911 was a hit on the festival circuit and culminated its run by winning the 2013 BAFTA, the British equivalent of the Academy Awards. One of Anderson’s writing collaborators on Longbird was Ainslie Henderson, whose own short I am Tom Moody has been a similarly big hit on the film festival circuit.
