After winning an Annie Award, a VES award, and having a successful opening at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, the Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem ride I helped previs is now coming to my city. After seeing the Hollywood Universal Studios last summer, I am definitely looking forward to returning so I can finally check out this 3D ride the way it was meant to be experienced.
It's awards season, and two of the projects I've worked on at The Third Floor have been nominated and even won some awards. Here is a summary so far:
-Academy Awards (Nomination): "Best Visual Effects" The Avengers (ILM)
-VES Awards: "Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project" Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem (Awarded to Illumination Entertainment)
-Annie Awards: "Best Animated Special Production" Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem (Awarded to Illumination Entertainment)
-Annie Awards: "Best Visual Effects in a Live Action Production" The Avengers (Awarded to ILM)
Congratulations to the teams who saw our previs through to a successful end and received these awards.
