The overall winner of last years competition was , created by a group of four students headed up by Julien Legay of France. Their project was entered into the professional animation category and focused on the poetic and artistic side of Asia.
We were so proud to win the G-Technology Driven Creativity Awards last year said Legay. We were a group of students, fascinated by animated feature films from the likes of Pixar® and Dreamworks® and have so much passion for animation and filmmaking, said Legay. Its great that G-Technology offers a platform for people like us to showcase our work and recognises the efforts that go into it. The Driven Creativity Awards are proof that you can be rewarded for hard work and determination and we intend to enter the awards again this year.
