Their film, called Dead Swan, is a fictional comedy based on the misconceptions over the legal positions of swans.
Put together as a project in their second year, the team used green screens and other film techniques.
Tutor, Chris Hainstock, said: “When they suggested making a comedy about a dead swan as their fiction project, I was initially curious.
“What they have produced however is a tight comedy using a great deal of careful green screen work, which would not be out of place on Channel 4 or BBC3.”
