Didn’t get out to The Domain last night to watch the finalists in Tropfest? Then you’re in luck — you can watch the winning entry right now! Damon Gameau took out the top prize with his quirky animated piece Animal Beatbox, a 2:42 minute film that cost $85 to make (most of it spent on cellophane) and was shot in his mother’s spare room. Damon is also an Aussie film and TV actor and appeared in Underbelly, Balibo as well as How I Met Your Mother as an Australian backpacker. The judges for the event included Olivia Newton-John, Twilight: Eclipse’s Xavier Samuel, last year’s Tropfest winner Abe Forsythe, and Tropfest founder and director John Polson. Upon accepting his best film award last night, Damon said, “I’m quite new to stop animation, but I find it a quick and versatile way to express any idea that may be lurking in my head.” Damon’s prize includes $5,000 in prize money, a digital camera and a return trip to LA. Not bad for a movie that only cost $85!
