AFTERIMAGES won BEST FEATURE FILM at the recent Eerie Horror Film Festival in Pennsylvania, USA.
And it also won BEST FX at the Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival in Michigan, USA. For the genre, this award is especially sweet as horror is the sum of its parts, particularly in special effects.
The special effects in AFTERIMAGES was designed and supervised by director Tony Kern who was supported by great enthusiasm and talent from students of Ngee Ann Polytechnic and First Media Design School; their roles included post-fx, rotoscoping and compositing. Special effects make-up, prosthetics and masks were created by Luke Polti, whose credits include The Matrix Reloaded, The Chronicles of Narnia, Where the Wild Things Are.
