Dead Island trailer wins gold at Cannes

Axis Animation’s astonishing Dead Island announcement trailer has won gold in the Internet Film category at 2011′s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The trailer was one of 41 films shortlisted from a list of hundreds. “We are overwhelmed to see the Dead Island trailer pick up an award at an event as prestigious as the Cannes Lions” said Axis executive producer, Richard Scott. “It goes to prove that the dedication shown by director Stuart Aitken and all of the Axis team has really paid off. I also want to give great credit to all the Deep Silver team because without their daring strategy and belief in what we could do, this project could have been so different.”
