Clones Takes Austrailian EFX and Animation Fest

Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones picked up the award for Best Visual Effects (Feature Film) at the Australian Effects and Animation Festival. Announced yesterday, this is the film’s second win in a major competition this year.

Showcasing effects by Industrial Light & Magic, Clones was up against some stiff competition. The other nominees were Subterano, Blade 2, Spiderman, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Seconds to Spare, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, XXX, The Time Machine, Panic Room and Simone.

The award comes on the heels of the film’s win at the London Effects and Animation Festival. There it beat out Spiderman, Black Hawk Down and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.
