The search for “greener pastures” turns out to be the beginning of a new awareness.
In 2006, Ebele Okoye won the DEFA Research Prize for Animation. The prize was aimed towards facilitating the preproduction phase of an Animation co-production with Estonia titled "Feet Voters" As circumstantially "Feet Voters" met an extensive stall with minimal or absolutely no signs of getting realized, Ebele interpreted her own ideas of the project into "Patterns"
