Accidents blunders and calamitiesThird year production, ‘Accidents, Blunders and Calamites’, took out Runner-Up Film of the Year (VFX) for 2017, with Weta Digital’s Anders Langlands saying: “My favourite film, Accidents, Blunders and Calamities, was funny, inventive and charming. All the set pieces were nicely shot, the CG creatures well-integrated and the whole thing cut together with a good flow and rhythm that kept the film moving.”

The film has already picked up a myriad of prizes at festivals around the world including Best Animated Film at the San Diego Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival (2016); People’s Choice Award (Show Me Shorts 2015); and the Jury’s Choice award at the SIGGRAPH Asia Computer Animation Festival Awards.

Recent Bachelor of Art and Design graduates Tristan Lewis and Abby Nath also gained Rookies recognition for their exceptional talent. Tristan was one of two recipients in Oceania to be awarded an internship with Weta Digital, while Abby beat out competitors from all around the globe to be awarded the scholarship for a Graduate Certificate through Rising Sun Pictures in conjunction with the University of South Australia.

Media Design School Bachelor of Art and Design programme leader Steve Dorner is delighted by the recognition that Tristan, Abby, and the third-year post-production team behind ‘Accidents, Blunders and Calamities’ received at this years’ Rookies.

Accidents, Blunders and Calamities and its director, James Cunningham, have already experienced considerable success at film festivals globally. The Rookies’ judging panel is comprised of representatives from some of the world’s top studios and to be judged Runner-Up in a competition that specifically recognises the contribution that our students have made is another great achievement,” says Steve.

“Congratulations to all of our students who were recognised for their contribution to the fields of 3D Animation and Visual Effects.”
