Hayley Warnock has capped off her year by winning the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) 'Screen It' Award.

Hayley Warnock has capped off her year by winning an Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) Screen It Award — a national award recognising excellence in filmmaking.

Hayley, who has just completed Year 12 at FCJ College, took out the award for Secondary School Animation in her first ever competition.

The presentation was held in Melbourne on December 7, with people attending from across the country.

Her film’s theme was ‘‘belonging’’; starting out in black and white and slowly turning to colour by the end.

Hayley said her passion for filmmaking began in Year 9 when she became hooked on You Tube and was influenced by other people’s work.

Screen It is Australia’s national film, animation and game-making competition for school-aged students.

Designed to encourage imagination and inventiveness in primary and secondary school students, Screen It fosters a new generation of young media makers.

Hayley hopes to attend Deakin University at Burwood next year to study film and television media, with a special interest in editing.

Down the track she would like to work in television, preferably with the ABC.

Her film, along with all the other winners, will screen for some time in the ACMI, off Federation Square.
