Byron Shire Animator's splendid work

18 Sep 2018

Local animator and filmmaker Kyle Healy had an integral role in bringing joy to millions of Splendour in the Grass fans across Australia in April by creating the much anticipated announcement of the 2018 lineup.

Working with William Gammon at Byron Bay visual effects studio Cumulus VFX, Kyle had 44 seconds to showcase the elements of Splendour. He was able to capture the essence of the festival in the lively animated sequence.

 Kyle, who completed a Bachelor of Film with SAE Creative Media Institute is also Co-founder and Creative Director of Husky Films based out of Byron Bay.

SAE Byron Bay Campus Manager Ben Funnell is proud of the talent passing through the institute; “Guiding local creatives to come out with a world-class qualification and work with local companies and with grass root festivals in the shire is what SAE Byron Bay is all about”, he says. 

With over 1 Million views, 36 thousand ‘likes’ and 7.7 thousand shares via the Splendour in the Grass Facebook page Kyle couldn’t be happier with the response the clip has received. “It has been incredible, I’m super stoked! The whole experience was fantastic and I had a lot of fun along the way”, he says.

Incredibly this year was be the first time Kyle attended Splendour - He deserves it for bringing a smile to thousands of happy punters.
