Autodesk, a design software company, has recognized two students for outstanding achievement in the graphic design and animation area.

Sandy Widyanata and Courtney Wise from the Australian Film Television and Radio School received an award for their short film entitled Plastic. The film, which touches upon the obsession with the perfect body image, uses integrated 3D modeling, animation and rendering as well as other visual effects.

"This award is a wonderful opportunity for us to inspire the next generation of design professionals," said Joe Astroth, vice president of learning and education at Autodesk, adding, "As visual effects become more technically complex, the need for well-trained talent in the entertainment industry continues to grow."

Astroth also pointed out that the company has partnered with prestigious international organizations, including the Visual Effects Society (VES), to encourage students to pursue digital technology education and prepare for rewarding careers.

The VES is a professional, honorary society, dedicated to advancing the arts, sciences and applications of visual effects and to upholding the highest industry standards and procedures.

The winning film was part of the students'' graduation project.
