On the 16th of October, Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian attended the Australian International Movie Convention (AIMC) in Gold Coast, Queensland where he received the Murray Forrest Award for Excellence in Filmcraft.
Zareh joins a distinguished list of past winners which include, Murray Forrest, Warwick Thornton, Yoram Gross, Don McAlpine and Andrew Lesnie.
During his acceptance speech, Nalbandian graciously said he sees his award as a reflection of the skill of Animal Logic’s creative team and Australian artistry.
“I am passionate about developing Australian talent and creating and retaining highly skilled jobs,” he said. “We have this brain drain: I want to stop and reverse it.”
