CHICAGO - Indian American laserist and animator Manick Sorcar, of Denver, Colorado, has won the prestigious Award of Merit at The Accolade Global Film Competition for his animation art piece entitled "Beautiful Mess".


The Accolade recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change.


Sorcar, the eldest son of the legendary magician late P.C. Sorcar, said he was thrilled and gratified with receiving the award, adding: "I take it as a recognition of the challenges I encountered in presenting the short, emotional story using laser as the animating medium and manipulating the strong beam of light as a harmless pencil to draw on a sketchbook."


This is not the first laser animation by Sorcar that received international recognition. He won the ILDA 2015 Artistic Award for 'Light Art in Shower Ocean' in Innovative Application of Laser category from the International Laser Display Association.


Sorcar had also won the ILDA 2007 Artistic Award in Laser Photography category for his laser art "Reflection" and the ILDA Artistic Award for Best Use of Lasers in Live Stage Performance for his "Enlightenment of Buddha.”


According to the Accolade, in winning this award, Sorcar joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award, including the Oscar winning production of "The Lady in Number Six" by Malcolm Clarke, the talented Dave Bossert of Disney for his short documentary, and "The Tunes Behind The Toons."
