Making-Of: Best Short Winner 2016 “Uncanny Valley”
In 2015, the short film “Shave It” from the Argentinean studio 3dar was one of many projects in competition for that year’s animago AWARDS. In 2016, not only did the team at 3dar receive another nomination – this time for their short film “Uncanny Valley” – they also went home with the prize for Best Short Film! The animago jury gave the award to this almost ten-minute work in recognition of its strong storytelling with a touch of documentary flavour. The jury was also impressed with the film’s effects, which were made on a zero budget, seeing as the project was a private 3dar endeavour.
