Bästa visuella effekter

Swiss – ”Alien” för Volkswagen
Juryns motivering: ”Med ett imponerade hantverk och stor kreativitet har man skapat fängslande visuella effekter som driver filmen framåt på ett fulländat sätt i sann Alien-anda. Med en enad juryn står det klart att detta är den värdiga vinnaren.”

Bästa animation

 

 

Goodbye Kansas – “Raid: World War II”
Juryns motivering: ”Bästa Animation har alltid varit ett pris som skapar extra mycket diskussion, då den omfattar så många olika tekniker, visuella uttryck och berättarformer. Uttrycket “animation” kommer från latinska “att ge liv” och detta har 2017 års jury valt att använda som ledord i bedömningen av årets bidrag.
Priset för Bästa Animation går därför till en film som förenar teknisk briljans med en filmiskt berättad, suggestiv historia. En film som imponerar med sitt hantverk men samtidigt håller publiken på tå från första till sista bildruta.”

The Square -VFX breakdown | GBK

Check out this breakdown from GBK on their work on Ruben Östlunds – THE SQUARE

 

THE SQUARE

In May 2017 Ruben Östlund became the first Swedish director to win the top prize in Cannes since 1951, when his feature film “The Square” won the Palme d’Or.

The film is a satirical drama and dark comedy set in a future Stockholm, where the monarchy has been abolished and the Royal Palace has been turned into a prestigious Art Museum. The film will represent Sweden in the foreign-language Oscar race at the 90th Academy Awards in 2018.

Goodbye Kansas co-produced the film and helped with the VFX; reshaping the Royal Palace in Stockholm into the Art Museum X-Royal, and creating some rather upsetting action within the Square art installation that plays a significant role in the film.

Westworld – ILP – Emmy winner in OUTSTANDING SPECIAL VISUAL EFFECTS – 2017 !

As you might already know, ILP with VFX supervisor Bobo Skipper and modelling lead artist Gustav Ahren won an Emmy award the 11th of September at the Emmy crafts award.

It was a big honor to be in LA at Microsoft arena to pick up the award.

I believe it is the 1st time any Scandinavian vfx company has won an Emmy (please correct me if I’m wrong)
