The prize was awarded to Here to Fall for its: ‘high quality of animation especially in the facial expressions of the main character, the way its storyline leaves you in thought and its effective use of a strong score’

Produced by Black North Animation and Visual FX Studio, Belfast.

BAFTA Award Nominee 2013.
Winner: Best Animation – Darklight Film Festival 2012
Winner: Don Quijote prize – International Federation of Film Societies, short film category

In 2011 we asked Michael Fleming to score our first short, 'Here To Fall'. The film had no dialogue so the score needed to underpin the visuals without overawing them. This is something Michael achieved effortlessly and in no small part contributed to 'Here To Fall' being nominated for a BAFTA in 2013. In fact, part of the score was subsequently chosen by BAFTA  for their Film Shorts selection trailer. 

Michael is a rare talent who is capable of sketching out comprehensive drafts after the briefest of discussions and then  remains true and committed to a project's creative vision until its conclusion. We will continue to work with him on our key projects into the future.
