A twenty-one year old film maker has pocketed $10,000 thanks to EA's Battlefield 4 short film competition.
The competition required entrants to submit a short film based on Battlefield 4. The entries were judged by a panel comprised of four DICE developers.
"We were absolutely blown away by the calibre of short films that were submitted in the Battlefield Film Challenge," says Lars Gustavsson, creative director at DICE.
"It was incredible to see such diverse talent from our Australia and New Zealand fans, inspired by our game. On behalf of the entire team at DICE, we would like thank all of those who participated and of course congratulate Patrick on his well-deserved win."
In addition to Patrick's winning entry, EA named four other films as shortlist finalists:
FOCUSED by Luke Matthews
Play Time Updated by Rob Hardy
Battlefield Noir by Luke Snadden and Craig Lee
Types of Players in Battlefield by Rebecca White
