Gravity wins big at the Oscars

I can’t say this was a complete surprise after the fantastic run Gravity’s had in the awards season, but winning an Oscar is still something else. Seeing our supervisor Tim Webber walking up there and accepting the award and becoming a part of an Oscar winning project feels a little surreal. Visual Effects was not the only award but only a part of an outstanding night for the film, which saw it take seven awards including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón, Best Cinematographer for Emmanuel Lubezki, Best Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing and Original Score.


What a fantastic ride! we worked extremely hard on it and now seeing it’s success makes all those long hours and late nights worthwhile. It is hard not to mention Alfonso Cuarón and his brilliant vision in bringing such gripping story to life and Tim Webber’s leadership in translating Alfonso’s vision into incredible images . Also I should mention the compositing supervision team; Mark Bakowski and Anthony Smith who were provided everyone with opportunities and support. To mark this occasion I’ve just launched my new VFX website at  http://vfx.samsalek.net.
