Roy winners 2017

Congrats to Swiss and GBK for winning this years Roy-awards.

See (in Swedish)

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.”

Johan Thorngren – CG garage podcast

Great podcast with Johan Thorngren, nowadays working at ILM

Johan Thorngren

A closer look at the generalist group inside ILM

Sweden’s long, harsh winters compelled Johan Thorngren to pursue creative endeavours, and after a stint in advertising he accepted an enviable position with ILM in San Francisco.

As a generalist, Johan’s job is to pick up VFX shots which don’t fit into the typical pipeline. His workload has increased from a handful of shots on movies such as Star Wars: Episode III, to thousands for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In this podcast, Johan talks about changes he’s seen in the visual effects industry over the past decade, creating the almost full-CG Leipzig airport battle forCaptain America: The Winter Soldier, and the wide range of software ILM has at its disposal to create stunning VFX shots. Chris and Johan also discuss the popular press’s opinion on CGI in movies, and invisible effects.
