Complicit - Festival winner

Only found out about this recently but my student film won best short film at Ecologico International Film Festival.  Quote from review:  Taurus for best short film in complicit - Gavin Hoffman (Ireland, 2013, 4 ')  for the following reasons: Dazzling! Through an indirect narrative (a man in psychoanalytic therapy), the film explores, in an unusual way, the guilt of humanity that lives in the shadow of technology and progress at the expense of the humanity that will "bake" in the sun the third world.

I worked on the film with Brown Bag films using Maya.  The film, titled Anya, is directed by Damian O'Connor and is a promotional film for the charity "To Russia with Love".  I was primarily modelling, texturing and lighting.  Release date for the completed film is in May.
