Cutting Edge wins awards from powerful short film

31 January 2016





The powerful short film about five year old Riley who wore a superhero costume under his clothes to protect himself and his little sister from abuse at the hands of their parents, has won an array of prestigious film awards.

Agency Publicis Mojo approached Cutting Edge to animate the confronting true story of the two children who are now on the road to recovery thanks to the help of Act for Kids.

The result was an outstanding animated film which has won two Golds, one Silver and one Bronze at the BADC awards, and was a finalist at the Australian Production Design Guild (APDG) Awards. The film was also nominated as a finalist for the Create Awards and received an Honourable Mention from HOWWW.

Both companies are long time pro bono supporters of ours and we are thrilled their work has been recognised in this way. Congratulations!
