A BUDDING student director has won first place in a competition to film a unique vision of Huddersfield.
Ross Birks, 19, of Lindley gave an overview of the town as well as the perspective of his family and his favourite aspects of the area.
Ross said: “I do a lot of films in my spare time and I want to go into direction.
“When the competition came up I thought I love making films anyway so I might as well enter, it’s been a good experience.
“The film was a personal look at the town, what’s good and what’s bad, but not much of the bad obviously.”
Huddersfield University web editor, Caroline Pringle, said: “We knew anecdotally that our students loved Huddersfield. We wanted to give them a way to get the information across and show the creative breadth of the school.
“We came up with a short video competition and wanted it to be open to people who could use their phones or a simple camera.
“The brief was to take a snapshot of what Huddersfield means to them.”
The competition also saw joint second place awarded to Richard Taylor and Robbie Paul.
