Discreet clients nominated for Best Visual Effects Oscar for ninth consecutive year

All three feature films nominated for the 76th Annual Academy Awards Best Visual Effects Oscar used Discreet’s technology to create their top-notch visual effects, marking the ninth year in a row that Discreet clients are nominated for this award.
Nominees ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ (Buena Vista), ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’ (New Line), and ‘Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World’ (20th Century Fox) captivated audiences with magical worlds crafted by inferno, flame, fire and lustre systems from Discreet, a division of Autodesk.
“The Best Visual Effects Oscar nominees have taken their craft to new heights, and the Discreet team is honoured that our products are their tools of choice,” said Paul Lypaczewski, general manager of Discreet and executive vice president of Autodesk. “2003 was an incredible year for visual effects, and 2004 holds the promise of even better things to come. Discreet is an integral part of that promise. We will be introducing some of the industry’s most innovative visual effects technology ever. Our tools will help transform filmmakers’ most ambitious visions into reality in new and powerful ways for many more years to come.”
