Last month Kojima received a Golden Joystick Lifetime Achievement Award, now the game director has been awarded yet another shiny trophy. The Bradford Animation Festival presents Kojima with the first ever ‘Bradford UNESCO City of Film Award for Cinematography in Videogames’. Check out Kojima’s acceptance speech and a short description by the festival below.
The Bradford Animation Festival is delighted to announce that legendary Japanese game director Hideo Kojima receives the inaugural Bradford UNESCO City of Film Award for Cinematography in Videogames.
Hideo, Director of Kojima Productions, has been given this prestigious award for his astounding directing, storytelling and cinematography in games such as mech-battling action title Zone of the Enders, and of course, the world-famous stealth game Metal Gear Solid, which stars the iconic character and enemy-of-terrorists, Solid Snake.
Seems like Kojima’s trophy cabinet has become a little more crowded these last few months.
