The 2020 Australian Effects & Animation Festival took place on Friday, 14 August where nine projects from Academy of Interactive Technology (AIT) students were selected as finalists, with ‘ALB-I’ taking home the ‘Special Merit Award’.

This is an extraordinary achievement for all of our students involved and to say we’re incredibly proud of them is an understatement. This is a testament to AIT’s commitment to being a leading 2D animation and 3D animation school in Australia.

These projects were created as part of AIT’s exclusive program,  ‘The Forge’ – a rigorous final year project that simulates the realities of the workplace. Students collaborate as part of a production team to respond to a brief – which they then pitch to a panel of industry experts for critique & recognition.
