A BOURNEMOUTH University graduate is celebrating after winning 11 awards for his series of online videos.

Henry Dalton, who studied television production, created the Future Duck web series of comical video clips, along with co-creator, Paul Cope, both 29, which were entered into the L.A. Web Series Festival in Hollywood.

Despite over 300 shows being submitted to the competition, it was Henry and Paul’s video series which achieved a clean sweep of awards, including for Outstanding Editing – Series, Outstanding Special/Visual Effects and Outstanding Writing – Comedy.

Henry, who grew up in Parkstone but now lives in London, said: “Future Duck just swept the boards at the award ceremony and won the most awards out of any show in the festival.

“My main love has always been for comedy and with my best friend, Paul, who I met at Bournemouth University, we started making online comedy sketches for BBC Online under the name, CopeandDalton.”

Henry says that, as they couldn’t afford a big crew or locations, they decided to teach themselves animation, so that they could put everything they imagined onto the screen.

He added: “We’ve also just heard we have been officially selected for Toronto Web Fest in Canada and are in the process of developing the show for television.”
