Our winner of The New Wave competition

Jason Albury has taken the top prize with his short film, “Word Play.” The New Wave panel felt Jason’s film displayed a very strong technical foundation of excellent cinematography and lighting. Furthermore, the director displayed a deft understanding of storytelling and comedic timing both in the script, from the performances of his actors and in the edit of the narrative. Most importantly, however, Jason never forgot the one key principle of always thinking of his audience.

Jason will make the trek from Melbourne to join Edge’s Department of Moving Image in Sydney. He’ll be joining the team as an intern early in the new year for a six-month paid internship. Congratulations Jason!
