AACTA Awards 2015

Hope you all enjoyed watching the 4th Annual AACTA Awards last night at The Star in Sydney.

“The AACTA Awards are held annually in recognition and celebration of Australia’s highest achievements in film and television, as judged by the industry itself. AFI | AACTA also recognises screen excellence, regardless of geography, through the AACTA International Awards, held each January in Los Angeles.”

Big Kahuna was asked to make another six of the giant golden statues that graced the stage and were used for celebrity photo opportunities at the AACTA event both in Sydney and LA.

The first 6 statues (we made in 2012) were shipped to the USA and also featured in the newly announced G’Day USA & AACTA partnership launch – nice to see them getting a workout! . They looked a treat (at both events) if we do say so ourselves!

More photos to come…
