Winner (Judge's Award): I am in charge

Ned Cox, Scotch College



What the judges had to say

‘A hilarious (and stress inducing!) short with top notch performances, great score, with wonderful cinematography and editing. All these elements coalesce brilliantly, and perfectly suit this story of a school play director whose ego is unleashed, whilst their grip of the project comes loose. Viewers might see the payoff joke coming, but it’s delivered with aplomb.’
– Christine Evely (Head of Education) & Garry Westmore (Senior Producer School Programs), ACMI
