4 minute read
Go behind the scenes with editors and visual effects artists from this year's Academy Award-nominated films.
Awards season has built up to this.
The 95th Academy Awards air on ABC this Sunday, March 12th, at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. This year’s nominees run the gamut from action-packed blockbusters that brought people back into theaters like Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to quiet films like The Banshees of Inisherin and Women Talking to The Fabelmans, Spielberg’s deeply personal ode to cinema, to the glitzy lush world of Elvis, the horror of war in All Quiet on the Western Front, the psychological tension of Tar, and the wicked satire of Triangle of Sadness. And then there’s Everything Everywhere All At Once that breaks every mold.
Congrats to all the nominees, and thank you to our nominated customers who help bring the magic of the movies to life!
Roto/prep artist Jay Joshi and compositor Carmen Wong share how they used Silhouette and Mocha Pro, respectively, on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Annie Amaya, roto/paint artist, flies into Top Gun: Maverick.
