New York Film Academy Australia (NYFAA) is excited to announce its official 2020 industry partnership with the Australian Production Design Guild (APDG).
The APDG welcomed NYFAA to the 9th Annual APDG Awards Ceremony last December. Patrick Ryan, Associate Chair of Filmmaking, presented the award with NYFAA naming rights for Best Production Design for a TV Drama or Web Series at the Australian Production Design Guild Awards held in Melbourne.
The APDG Awards is an annual event organized by the Australian Production Design Guild. The event acknowledges excellence in design on Australian or International productions for feature films, short film, TV productions, webseries, and stage productions. This year, the event was held on the prestigious stage of The Melba Spiegeltent.
Ryan spoke onstage while presenting the award, saying “On behalf of NYFA Australia, I’d like to say a thank you to all the production designers for making this world a little more beautiful one work at a time.” It was met with a round of applause from the industry guests.
Nominees included Black Mirror: Striking Vipers, Bloom, and Tidelands. The winner was Fiona Donovan, APDG, for her work on A Place to Call Home.
In 2020, the APDG will make further headway into Queensland, where a thriving film industry is led by leading local and international practitioners across the fields of NYFA Australia’s studies.
