Framestore wins BAFTA

Monday 19 February 2018

Framestore is proudly celebrating a win in Special Visual Effects at the 2018 British Academy Film Awards, for its work on Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.

Framestore’s Richard Hoover accepted the BAFTA at Sunday’s glittering ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall, alongside fellow Supervisors John Nelson, Gerd Nefzer and Paul Lambert. Richard led a team of over 175 artists, crafting almost 300 shots for the final picture, which built on extensive concept and pre-production work by Framestore’s Art Department.

The creative studio’s remit spanned large-scale CG environment builds and challenging animation work, taking the artists on a flying spinner ride from the asset-packed Trash Mesa to the striking, post-apocalyptic Las Vegas.
