A film-maker from Gorleston has won two Royal Television Society awards.
Tom Mallion, 21, won the gongs for his film Flash mobs: the story behind the madness. The 30-minute DVD film tries to get behind the phenomenon of flash mobbing, in which large groups of people perform wacky stunts in public places.
Mr Mallion's �200 film saw him and two other Lincoln University media students set up a flash mob event through the internet in Lincoln town centre. It is presented by Jack Jay of Yarmouth's Hippodrome.
About 70 people can be seen in the film madly dancing to Queen's We Will Rock You and the Village People's YMCA.
On Thursday night, Mr Mallion and fellow Lincoln University media students, Adam Stubbings and Rick Horsfall, won best student factual entertainment and best overall student production at the Royal Television Society midland regional award ceremony in Birmingham.
To help understand the mad world of flash mobbing, Mr Mallion, who graduated with a first in media production in the summer, spoke to advertising guru Ed Sayers of Saatchi and Saatchi.
