Okja, Guardians Advance in VFX Oscar ContentionDec 20, 2017
The 10-title shortlist for the VFX Oscar is out, and we’re thrilled to see that Okja and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have made the cut! Our Guardians team, led by VFX Supervisor Nordin Rahhali, crafted over 500 shots for the Marvel blockbuster, with a wide range of effects from world building to intergalactic space ship crashes to believable performances from Rocket and Baby Groot. For Netflix original feature Okja, our VFX Supervisor Erik-Jan de Boer and Animation Supervisor Stephen Clee led the Method team to meticulously design and bring to life the loveable creature — an 8-foot tall super-pig weighing 12,000 pounds — amid the live action actors and environments.
Congratulations to our artists who helped bring these imaginative tales to the screen, and to all the other talented teams whose work is being recognized. We’ll see you at the bakeoff on January 6!
