Attitude up for more Apollo gongs

Wendy Colville is nominated for the long-form directing gong. Bill Toepfer is nominated for editing, the same category in which Jai White won the Apollo Award last year for Jimmy Wants A Job.

All up 45 finalists, whittled from 185 submissions, compete in 15 categories. Singapore leads the nomination by country, helped considerably by having been the production base for the Awards’ most-nominated show.

HBO Asia’s Grace, featuring Flat 3 lust interest Joson An, has seven nominations. A number of people scored multiple nominations, but the only winner that’s confirmed at this time is Method Studio’s Andrew Clarkson, who has all three finalist spots in the Colour Grading category.

Five of the 23 judges hail from Australia. Ex-pat Sarah Macdonald, of London-Singapore production company MAKE, is the only Kiwi on the judging panel. Chief judge Ian Bailie also finds himself among the nominees, named a finalist for his work art directing Grace.

The Apollo Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Singapore on 03 June.
