'SunDay' screened at 2011 Melbourne International Animation Festival

15-Sep-2011
AIE Melbourne's former students Arunima Patke and Keiko Kamata's 3D animation screened at the Melbourne International Animation Festival (MIAF) 2011.

The four-minute animation, SunDay, revolves around Rikka who is responsible for switching the day and night in her town. It was created as part of their first year project for Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media. With only ten weeks to work on their project, the pair wrote a strict schedule and worked closely together. While Arunima focused on bringing Rikka to life, Keiko created the environment and added colour and light to Rikka's world. 

After completing their project on time, the pair decided to enter their animation to MIAF 2011. SunDay was successfully invited to be screened in MIAF's Best of the Next Australian showcase, and tickets sold out before the screening at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
Since then Keiko has worked on 3D animations for Rubicon Water and Mintleaf Studio, and Arunima is working on exciting new projects with Keiko.
