Drawing acclaim

Award for ITV's Headcases

ITV1’s cartoon satire Headcases has won a top award for innovation.

The technical team behind the comedy were praised for their speed and inventiveness when they picked up the gong at the Royal Television Society Craft and Design Awards.

Judges said: ‘The jury chairs were impressed by the innovation, humour, combination of contemporary story telling and mischievous animation, all achieved on a low budget in fast turnaround. 

‘The winning programme set a new standard for originality and risk-taking - the very backbone of why we work in TV.’

‘In addition to the overall quality of the technical and design teams there was a high degree of innovation involved in the speed of the process which meant the items could be written and recorded just 36 hours before transmission.’

At the same ceremony, BBC One sitcom Not Going Out won an award for lighting and camerawork.
