Framestore CFC Nominated For Seven Awards At VES

Framestore CFC has equalled its own record in the annual VES Award nominations, announced on January 8.
Matching last year's feat, company members gained seven nominations in the Fifth Annual VES Awards. The nominations span three different media - commercials, television and film - more than any other single company, marking a unique achievement for the UK facility.
The nominated categories are:
  • Children of Men - Best Single Visual Effect of the Year
  • Children of Men - Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Movie
  • Prehistoric Park - Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Series
  • Rexona/Sure 'Go Wild' - Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial
  • Geico 'Chat' - Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Broadcast Program, Commercial or Music Video
  • Coke 'The Greatest Gift' - Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Broadcast Program, Commercial or Music Video,
  • Coke 'The Greatest Gift' - Outstanding Compositing in a Broadcast Program, Commercial or Music Video
Particularly gratifying among this year's nominations were the three received for projects created by the company's US Commercials team, Framestore NY. Since setting out its stall in New York just three years ago, Framestore NY has made an impact out of all proportion to its modest size, and these nominations mark yet another milestone in the US team's remarkable progress.
Founded in 1997, the Visual Effects Society is an organization comprised of visual effects artists desiring to honour, advance and promote visual effects for its membership and the industry as a whole. Society headquarters are located in Los Angeles, CA with approximately 1,300 members in 16 countries. The Awards were first given in 2003, and this year they recognize outstanding visual effects in twenty one categories of film, television, commercials, music videos and games. Nominees were chosen by a panel of over eighty visual effects professionals.
Framestore CFC has consistently performed well at the VES Awards. Since their inception in 2003, the company has won a total of ten trophies, including three of the four 'Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial' Awards.
Winners will be announced at the 5th Annual VES Awards gala on February 11, 2007 at the Kodak Grand Ballroom in Hollywood.
