Double Negative Nominated for BAFTA VFX Award


Double Negative‘s work on Inception has received a nomination for Special Visual Effects in this year’s BAFTA awards. DNeg has enjoyed a long relationship with Inception‘s director, Christopher Nolan, having worked on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (for which DNeg’s VFX supervisor, Paul Franklin, was nominated for an Academy Award), and this strong relationship led to the company creating the vast majority of the VFX with New Deal Studios supplying the miniatures.

Inception presented a mammoth creative and technical challenge to Double Negative, calling for mind-bending visual effects, such as the city of Paris folding in on itself and the creation and destruction of the modernistic Limbo city.

Inception also leads with the most nominations for Film in this year’s VES awards; with four nominations, three of which are for DNeg work including Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects Driven Feature Motion Picture; Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture, and Outstanding Compositing in a Feature Motion Picture.

DNeg has also been honored with a VES nomination for the Paul Greengrass film, Green Zone, in the Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Feature Motion Picture category.

The London- and Singapore-based company also worked on four of the seven films in the Academy Awards ‘bake-off’ – Inception, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Iron Man 2 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.
