Congratulations to all great winners of the VES and Baftas.

I got the opportunity myself to fly over to LA and attend the VES ceremony 2 weeks ago. Didn’t win, but it was great to have been nominated and ILP was nominated in 2 categories which I believe is the first time in Swedish VFX history.

Here are all the winners at the VES.
