Awesome. Outstanding. Congratulations.

Mathematically minded, therefore he inserted the Roman numerals for the year in the credits?

Or, actor if he looks like your wife. :rolleyes:

Seriously though, attention to detail, so guessing cinematography,CGI and editing.

Fathers get to brag. Especially the non bragging types like yourself.

Awesome. Outstanding. Congratulations.

Thanks Klo, and good guess, it was editing.

What for and why is the "won" in quotation marks?
Okay, here is why I say "won".

The film was "Helium" and it won best short film at the 2014 Oscars. It was written and directed by a friend of my son (Anders Walter), and my son (Lars Wissing) did the editing. As Oscar time drew near, Anders asked Lars if was going to go over to the US for the awards. Anders warned Lars, he may not be able to get him a ticket into the theatre, as they were only offering Anders 2 tickets at that time. Lars asked us, the family, what he should do. I said "Go! Even if you can't get into the theatre, and even if you don't win, the parties and everything would be amazing!". In the end he decided spending around 10,000kr ($2,000 Aus $) was too much on a 3-4 day trip, and he decided to stay home. On the Saturday before the Awards, Anders rang Lars and said "I've got you a ticket into the theatre, are you coming?". History shows the film won, and Anders and some other guy (can't remember who) were up on stage collecting the Award. My son Lars would have been up there with them, but chose to stay home! We have a picture on our wall of Lars holding "his" Oscar, but wow it would have good to have a picture of him up on stage.
It has actually led Lars to quit his job, and become a freelance editor, and he is booked around 18 months ahead, editing films and shows from all around the World. He was working at DR as an editor, but this is much better. DR is the Danish equivalent of ABC TV in Australia.

Here's my son, holding "his" Oscar!

That's great! He definitely won it in my view. I found it here:
Just watched the short film. The words very good don't do it justice.
Thanks Guys. :D

This Anders Walter guy is a bit of a freak. Helium was the second film he ever made, and the first film he made (9 meter) was actually short listed for the Oscars, but missed the final cut. So two films made, both under Oscar notice, and one wins! I'll tell you something else, I think 9 meter is better than Helium!

Watch it here if you are interested: 9 Meter

it's about 17 minutes long.
