Prestigious BAFTA Award for Dupe
We are very proud to announce that Dupe (featured in our October motion control Blog,) was awarded Best Short Film at the BAFTA Scotland Awards 2005 earlier this month. For those of you overseas or unawares, BAFTA or British Academy of Film & Television Arts Awards are kind of our equivalent to the US Oscars, so this was a tremendous achievement.
You may remember that our very own Ulti-head was used to replicate several identical clones of a lazy slacker called Adam in this amusing tale. Both Chris and Henry have praised the Ulti-head as the perfect motion control system for their requirements, firstly because of their tight budget, secondly as it was small and very portable and thirdly it didn’t have to come with a specialised operator. In fact, they were in a position to shoot with it after just one day of training. To re-read the previous Blog from October, click here http://www.mrmoco.com/wp/blog/2005/10/
The Scottish BAFTAs, just like the UK BAFTAs, are designed to celebrate and foster the talent that is working in Scotland. This is where Dupe was shot, under a Scottish short film scheme called DigiCult (funded by the UK Film Council).
