The Hollywood Professional Association announced the nominees for its annual HPA Awards for post-production, an honor that promotes outstanding creative artistry, and recognizes the achievement of talent, innovation, and engineering excellence. ILM is thrilled to have contributed to three shows nominated in the Outstanding Visual Effects category this year. Nominees include Richard Bluff, Hal Hickel, Jeff Capogreco, Abbigail Keller, and Joe Bauer for The Mandalorian – “Chapter 9: The Marshal”, David Seager, Alexandra Greene, George Kuruvilla, Dan Mayer, and Dan DeLeeuw for Loki – “Journey Into Mystery”, and Chad Wiebe for his work on Jungle Cruise.
“It is an absolute honour to have been nominated for our work,” said Alexandra Greene, Visual Effects Producer at ILM. “It’s hard to put into words the gratitude I have for all the ILM artists and production crews who poured their heart and souls into bringing the “Void” to life on Loki, along with all of the larger-than-life creatures that reside there. Every day I find myself amazed by both the innovation and creativity that comes from our teams here at ILM, including the work by our fellow ILM nominees for The Mandalorian, and Jungle Cruise. Congratulations are in order!”
Janet Lewin, ILM’s General Manager and Senior Vice President notes, “I could not be more proud of the nominees and their teams that worked on these incredible shows,” adding, “I’m continually in awe of our team’s technical ingenuity, imagination, and relentless spirit, and I’m so pleased to see their hard work recognized by the HPA.”
The annual HPA Awards are returning as an in-person event this year, presented at a live gala on Thursday, November 18th at the historic Hollywood Legion Theater. Tickets are on sale now.
