Tomas Vergara’s ISOLATED Nabs Kinsale Shark Nomination for Best Animated Short
The Kinsale Nominations Shortlist is live and Three Wise Monkeys’ Tomas Vergara is shortlisted for Best Animated Short. The category jury for this year is Sally-anne Dale – Chief Creation Officer at Droga5 in NYC, Simon Wells – Controller of Funded Content at Channel 4 and John Doris - Director of Content Production at Saatchi & Saatchi in NYC. The winners will be announced on 10th September.
A self-taught animation artist, designer and director, Vergara’s recent short film ISOLATED is a high-tempo animated journey through a city on the brink of destruction. Chilling and graphic, the film adopts a hyper-real aesthetic that provides an intense and immersive experience of a world on the edge of an acopolypse. The impressive five minute film is a Vimeo Staff Pick delivering full-blown tension that draws the audience into the unfolding on-screen drama.
Chilean born and Santiago based, Vergara’s experience lies across the film and advertising industries generating computer graphics imagery that pushes the boundaries of imagination and budget standards. Working through his own boutique shop, Peak Pictures, in Santiago and now exclusively with Three Wise Monkeys in the UK.
Carl Grinter says, ‘Tomas Vergara is an enormous talent whose hard work and perseverance to create something that hasn’t been seen before in computer animation marks his appetite as a Director to do great things. We are hoping the Kinsale Shark nomination for Best Animated Short is the first of many for him’.
