Affairs of the Art: Welsh animated short gets Oscar nomination

An animated short film made in Wales has been nominated for an Academy Award.

Affairs of the Art, the latest in a series starring working class Welsh factory worker Beryl and her family, was made by a team from the University of South Wales, including director Joanna Quinn and writer producer Les Mills.

The film takes inspiration from the mundane aspects of life and the 15,000 drawings, done by hand, took six years to produce.
