Awards show recognises Vergara's 'ISOLATED' for Best Animation & Best Animated Short Film
Three Wise Monkeys’ Tomas Vergara Wins Big at 2015 Kinsale Sharks

Last week saw the 2015 Kinsale Shark Awards reveal the winners and Three Wise Monkeys’ Tomas Vergara wins in both of his nominated categories - Best Animated Short & Best Animation.


A self-taught animation artist, designer and director, Vergara’s recent short film ISOLATED is a high-tempo animated journey through a city on the brink of destruction. Chilling and graphic, the film adopts a hyper-real aesthetic that provides an intense and immersive experience of a world on the edge of an acopolypse. The impressive five minute film is a Vimeo Staff Pick delivering full-blown tension that draws the audience into the unfolding on-screen drama.

Chilean born and Santiago based, Vergara’s experience lies across the film and advertising industries generating computer graphics imagery that pushes the boundaries of imagination and budget standards. Working through his own boutique shop, Peak Pictures, in Santiago and now exclusively with Three Wise Monkeys in the UK.

Carl Grinter says, "Tomas is happy and humbled by the Kinsale recognition and awards for his film Isolated. Computer animation and visual effects is a true love for him and he’s always seeking to bring something new to his work. His current project is a film for Chrysler Spark so we are hoping this award will bring him greater visibility in the commercial arena".
