Emmy Awards 2007 Acknowledge Framestore CFC's 'Ocean Odyssey'

The recently announced 2007 Emmy Award nominations saw Ocean Odyssey (US Title: Secrets of the Deep) in contention for two award categories: 'Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming One Hour Or More)' and 'Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special'.

The programmes - broadcast in the UK as two one-hour episodes in May 2006 - were another of Framestore CFC's highly successful collaborations with Impossible Pictures. The two companies have worked side by side now for many years on projects as diverse as the Walking With. series, Space Odyssey, Prehistoric Park, and, most recently, Primeval. Overall, Framestore CFC has won thirteen prime time Emmys since 1996.

 Ocean Odyssey is a speculative science programme which aims to convey what some of earth's invisible environments - the depths of the world's oceans - might be like to live in.
The programme was produced by Ceri Barnes and directed by Dave Allen.

It took a core team of around 40 artists and technicians some seven months to create over 420 VFX shots for Ocean Odyssey. As well as the whale himself, the programmes feature seven other hero creatures, shoals of fish, schools of whales and many spectacular environmental and dramatic effects such as fields of icebergs, underwater volcanoes and a drowned town. 

The awards will be presented during the 59th Annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards, during a ceremony to be held at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles on Saturday, September 8 2007.
