Visual effects artists will step into the spotlight today at the 17th Annual Visual Effects Society (VES) Awards. Tonight, the extraordinary, frequently fantastical, often heart-stopping visual effects that reached even farther this year will be honored during a gala ceremony at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
Sohonet is honored to have been utilized by many of the talented artists and facilities that are nominated this year, including ILM which is one of the VES leading nominees with six nods overall for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Aquaman, Bird Box (supporting VFX), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Ready Player One, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Also receiving multiple nominations was Disney’s first VR animated short Cycles and the mega-hit Ralph Breaks the Internet. Each film received three VES nods. Disney also received a nomination alongside Framestore for Christopher Robin.
VES nominees Cinesite, DNEG, Dreamworks, Goodbye Kansas, MPC, Rodeo FX, Scanline VFX, Sony, and The Mill are all among the many facilities which have used Sohonet’s technology this year.
In addition to the winners being revealed, the VES will present the Visionary Award to Westworld‘s Jonathan Nolan. The VES Award for Creative Excellence will be presented to Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Congratulations to all the 2019 VES Award nominees and honorees on your truly outstanding achievements! We will see you at the VES Awards!
