Jai Waite takes second Apollo award

Jai Waite was one of two nominees for NZ programmes at this year’s Apollo Awards, which ran in Singapore last week. Waite followed up his 2014 win in the Editing – Long Form (Unscripted) category for Jimmy Wants A Job by taking out the same category for his work on Attitude’s Baby Charlotte Grows Up.

Emma Calveley was also nominated in the Directing – Long Form category for Attitude’s A Father’s Love, but missed out to Singapore production house August Pictures’ Woo Chun Kuan.

The event’s multiple award winners included HBO Asia’s Halfworlds, which took the cinematography, motion graphics and long form colour grading gongs. The winner of the grading gong for Halfworlds, Azman Mohamed, also won the short form grading category.

Ervin Han’s short The Violin, one of the projects supported to celebrate Singapore’s 50th anniversary celebrations last year, took the music and 2D animation awards.

The Apollo Awards, launched in 2005, honour production and post-production work across the Asia Pacific region. The award event runs alongside trade shows Broadcast Asia and CommunicAsia, at the same time a good number of the region’s advertising industry personnel are in Singapore for the AMES conference and awards.
