BA(Hons) Animation Art alumna Calleen Koh is the only Singaporean whose short film, To Kill The Birds and the Bees, was nominated for the Yugo BAFTA Student Awards this year. Not only was her film able to stand out from the 715 submissions BAFTA received, she was also the only Singaporean and one of a handful of Asians who were nominated.
