Brainstorm Digital took home two top honors from the 9th annual Visual Effects Society Awards.
The first award was for “Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Broadcast Program,” honoring Brainstorm’s VFX Producer Richard Friedlander, along with VFX Producer Dave Taritero and VFX Supervisor Robert Stromberg. The 2nd award, “Outstanding Models and Miniatures in a Broadcast Program”, went to Brainstorm’s amazingly talented team of Supervising Compositor, J. John Corbett, Senior Matte Painter, Matthew Conner and CG Supervisor, Brendan Fitzgerald. This event marks Brainstorm’s second set of nominations, but it’s first win. Says VFX Producer, Rich Friedlander, “it was nerve-wracking yet gratifying to be judged by the people whose work we have always aspired to. Now we feel like a member of that special club.” Co-founder Glenn Allen elaborates “to go from literally unknown to VES winners in just 5 years is definitely a hallmark achievement for Brainstorm.”
The awards show broadcast will premiere on Saturday, February 19 at 10:00pm on REELZ CHANNEL.
