In January the Visual Effects Society (VES), the industry’s professional global honorary society, held its 20th Annual VES Awards. The prestigious yearly celebration recognises outstanding visual effects artistry and innovation in film, animation, television, commercials and video games and the VFX supervisors, VFX producers and hands-on artists who bring this work to life.
The Mill were delighted have won two awards at the ceremony – their photoreal rendition of Einstein in Smart Energy’s ‘Einstein Knows Best’ took home the award for Outstanding Animated Character in a Commercial, while Verizon’s surreal and spectacular spot ‘The Reset’, took home an award for Outstanding Compositing & Lighting in a Commercial. In addition to these two wins, six projects were shortlisted.
