Award Reason

This work strikes a good balance between contrasting expressions of the organic versus the inorganic. It's fun the way the main object comes to life from a Dali painting and begins to move. This is an extremely creative work with good composition and high production values. Also, the quality of the Computer Graphics is maintained throughout the work. It is an emotional work that strongly impacts the viewer.
