Dneg brings home the ‘Best VFX’ Oscar – for the second year in a row!

February 29, 2016

Huge congratulations to Double Negative for once again bringing home the ‘Best VFX’ Oscar!

Up against heavyweights ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, ‘The Martian’, ‘The Revenant’ and of course ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, Dneg’s work on ‘Ex Machina’ won over the Academy voters and saw Andrew Whitehurst, Paul Norris, Mark Ardington and Sara Bennett pick up the coveted statuettes.

This is the second year in a row that Dneg has brought home the ‘Best VFX’ Oscar; last year, it was recognized for its work on Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’.

Accepting the award, Andrew Whitehurst said: “Visual effects is massively a team game… We’ve got to thank Alex [Garland] for being an amazing director. We have to thank Alicia [Vikander] for being Ava. And we have to thank the teams of artists, production and technical personnel at Double Negative, Milk VFX and Utopia, who are amazing. Without them, we are nothing. Thank you so much.”
