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)
