The post-production teams who help bring your favorite TV and streaming shows to life celebrated their achievements at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards this past weekend. You can catch an edited version of the ceremony on Saturday, January 13th, at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on FXX or stream it on Hulu. 

We were thrilled to see over twenty Boris FX customers directly nominated and many more involved on the honored projects. Congrats to all the winners, nominees, and artists behind this year’s nominated projects — and thank you for making us laugh, cry, and peek out from behind blankets.

Cheers to DNEG, WETA, Storm Studios, Distillery VFX, and HBO on their win for The Last of Us! As we all know, it takes many vendors to pull off a VFX heavy series like The Last Of Us. Learn how Wylie Co., who handled the comp QC work on the entire season, and also completed hundreds of final shots, used Mocha Pro in their pipeline.

Nominated VFX Supervisor Adam Balentine discusses the visual effect challenges Scanline VFX faced on Netflix's Shadow and Bone (season 2) and how the team used Silhouette for rotoscoping and paint work.

And if you're curious about the role of a VFX Editor — and why it's so vital — first-time nominee Liyana Mansor breaks it down and details how she used Continuum and Sapphire in her temp VFX compositing workflow on Disney+'s Andor.

The Emmy-winning duo behind The Last of Us, Timothy A. Good, ACE, and Emily Mendez, discuss the role of empathy in editing and how shot selection increased tension, emotion, and connection. 

The White Lotus team chats about the value of being on production and that magic moment when music drops perfectly into a scene, and the Succession family (not like the Roys!) share what it’s like to edit with all those moving camera angles, each take being different, and more.

Stephanie Filo, ACE (and if you follow her, meme queen 👑), was pitted against herself (just like that Spiderman meme) for her work on HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show and Mel Brook’s History of the World Part II — and she won! Her win for A Black Lady Sketch Show, which she shares with colleagues Malinda Zehner Guerra and Taylor Joy Mason, ACE, makes her a 3-peat winner for the series. She was also nominated for her dramatic editing turn on Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (Outstanding Picture Editing For A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie). Learn about the editing journey that led to three history-making Emmy nominations in one year


Our Art of the Cut series with Steve Hullfish also features the Emmy Award-winning editors from Netflix’s BEEF and other nominees, including Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, Moonage Daydream, and SNL.
