SFS student wins Avid grant
[Press release by Avid]
Avid has announced Aldo Hodgkinson, a student at the Sydney Film School (SFS), Australia, as the winner of the sixth and final round of the Avid Asia-Pacific Student Grant.
Aldo won for his film titled Resonance, which was edited on Avid Xpress Pro. The inspiration for Resonance came from Aldo’s passion for music and its power to enhance the feelings of love and loss in film. With the assistance of composer Nic McConaghy, he brought this message to life.
The judging panel was impressed by Aldo Hodgkinson‘s entry stating: “In this piece, audio plays a far bigger role than the visuals, setting the right evocative atmosphere. The girl’s voice sounds far away and ethereal while the violin is direct and present, effectively reinforcing the reality that the violinist chooses to live in. The violinist’s proud isolation is palpable.”
