The Adventure of the Girl with the Light Blue Hair
The animated film The Adventure of the Girl with the Light Blue Hair by Professor Ronan Deazley and CREATe researcher Bartolomeo Meletti won the AHRC Award for Innovation in Film.
The project, which explores copyright and the use of ideas and expressions in the public domain, was produced with funding from the AHRC.
The panel of judges – consisting of industry and academic experts such as film director Beeban Kidron, Financial Times Arts Editor Jan Dalley, and actor and producer Diana Quick – described the film as “a well-constructed, quality animation addressing issues of creativity, IP and copyright for schools and undergraduates: lively, engaging, witty (à la Sherlock Holmes mode), informative and educating at the same time.”
