A big congratulations goes out to former student Samuel Chen (pictured here with his Australian cinematography awards he won last year). His student film, Kangaroo Island: Life on the Edge, just won Best Independent Production at the Green Screen International Wildlife Film Festival.
The commendations from the judges are as follow: "The films of this category have one thing in common: The filmmakers start on their film journey without outward pressure on the choice of subject, the view point, the design and without attention to viewing figures. The winning entry tells the story of a woman who loves her native nature and wants to raise her childÊs awareness for their environment. This miniature is a metaphor and an appeal to everyone to take careful note of their immediate environment and show it its due respect".
