In 2006 Bizanski's video for Wolf Parade had won "best animated music video" at the Antville 06 MVA's,[2] and rose to being #1 on ifilm.com’s Top 100 videos.[3] His work had been exhibited in Res Magazine, IdN Magazine,[4] Boards Magazine, Stereogum,[5] Motionographer, Filmmaker magazine, It's Nice That, Twitch, MTV[6] as well as in Centre Pour L'Image Contemporaine Genéve, and numerous venues and festivals.
