Winner of the Professional section is Nick Humphrey, second is Kris Goodman with David Howard taking third place. Commenting on the winning entry, the judges said, “Builds well – the cueing through it was good and the progression of ideas well delivered and it pulls back to the organ – so story keeps going – pretty realistic, good movie – lots of falling effects – well thought out & well executed.”

The First place winners in both Professional and Student categories will receive a £1000 Amazon Voucher, a trip for two to Claypaky in Bergamo when travel restrictions allow, a 12 month licence for WYSIWYG Perform, and Claypaky and CAST merchandising.
