Congratulations to Narelle Autio, Trent Parke, Matthew Bate (Closer Productions), and collaborator Anton Andreacchio (Jumpgate VR) for winning the Imagine Film Festival, Imagine VR Award for ‘The Summation of Force’!
In their creative collaboration, Parke and Autio turn their gaze to the possibilities of filmic narrative, and look to family and sport for subject material. In a moonlit suburban yard, two brothers battle one another in a mythic game of cricket. A study of the motion, physics and psychology of elite sport; a cosmic, dreamlike and darkly beautiful metaphor for life.
This is the inaugural award at Imagine Film Festival for a virtual reality piece.
