Betty by Jessica Wainwright (2010)

Betty is a Welsh woman whose interests and tastes are told through this animation. It is a superb character study with a range of deftly handled techniques. It won the IdeasTap: Short Animation Competition 2011. Directed by Jessica Wainwright at Newport University, Wales. Initially intent on making 2D hand drawn films, she made the transition into 3D stop motion animation in 2009 and revealed a natural talent in this medium. Utilising second hand, commonplace, materials within stop motion, her primary motivation in making films is the ability to open the viewer’s mind and elevate the ordinary.
