The film picked up the award at a glittering ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. DNEG was the lead Visual Effects partner on ‘Blade Runner 2049’, and has already brought home a BAFTA and a Visual Effects Society Award in the last few weeks for its visual effects work on the movie.
Led by VFX Supervisor Paul Lambert, DNEG’s Blade Runner team delivered most of the Los Angeles 2049 cityscapes, the Joi hologram effects and the seawall chase at the end of the movie. Paul accepted the award last night alongside Overall VFX Supervisor John Nelson, Gerd Nefzer and Richard R. Hoover. Overall, DNEG’s VFX team completed 316 shots for the film.
