Shelved heads South

Media Design School 08 Feb 2013 Comments

Media Design School is celebrating the success of its short film Shelved, which has been selected to premiere at one of the biggest festivals in the world - South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.

Media Design School’s animated short films have enjoyed sustained success at international film festivals over the years including the Aspen Shorts Fest, Hollyshorts, Flickerfest in Sydney and Siggraph in Vancouver.

However, SXSW is the most high profile selection to date and a great way to kick off 2013, says director James Cunningham.

“The news came like a bolt out the blue. To get our little film into such a prestigious and industry focused festival is simply fantastic. It is great to have all the students superb work recognised by the coolest festival around.”

Shelved was shot in one day with all actors replaced by fully animated robots by a team of 11 Media Design School students as part of their final project.
