Framestore Lands 14 Nominations at the 16th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards
Framestore has received 14 nominations from the Visual Effects Society, celebrating the artistry of ten projects across the global creative studio’s portfolio. Framestore’s Montréal facility created 300 VFX-heavy shots for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, which holds three of the company’s nominations; two of which contend the prize for Created Environment in a Photoreal Feature. Last week BAFTA nominated the film for Special Visual Effects, naming Framestore VFX Supervisor Richard Hoover.

There were further VES nods to Framestore’s Film division, with nominations for Darkest Hour, Downsizing, Beauty and the Beast and Thor: Ragnarok. Framestore’s work on the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise continues to attract attention, with two cinematic nominations and a third for Mission: BREAKOUT!, Disney’s California Adventure theme park ride, in the Special Venue Project category.

Framestore’s Advertising artists also celebrate four nominations: two for the character craft of Mercedes-Benz S-Class ‘King of the Jungle’, directed by long-time collaborator Daniel Kleinman at Rattling Stick. Framestore’s compositors go head-to-head in Compositing in a Photoreal Commercial, with Nespresso’s acclaimed ‘Comin’ Home’ spot, starring George Clooney, lining up against ‘New Legends Will Rise’, the visually dazzling trailer to video game Destiny 2.

Says William Sargent, CEO, of the nominations, said: "It is extremely gratifying to see Framestore’s work acknowledged by our peers at the Visual Effects Society. That the range of work nominated is so varied - spanning the many disciplines and talents under our roof - is testament to the unrelenting creativity of our ever-evolving industry."
