Being nominated for an Emmy in the same category as AMC’s “Walking Dead” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is an absolute honor, but winning it is even more humbling! Brainstorm Digital’s own Richard Friedlander (VFX Producer) and Glenn Allen (VFX Producer), as well as 2-time Academy Award-winner Robert Stromberg and 2-time Emmy winner Dave Taritero, walked away with the Emmy for Outstanding Visual Effects for a Series (“Boardwalk Empire”) at Saturday night’s 2011 Creative Arts Emmys held in Hollywood, CA. Earlier this year the Brainstorm team was given 2 VES awards for their work on “Boardwalk Empire”, and now they have an Emmy to add to the trophy case.

Brainstorm Digital is currently wrapping up their work on the second season of “Boardwalk Empire” and can only hope to receive more nominations for their work next year.
