Encore VFX Takes Primetime Emmy
Encore VFX is excited to announce that it received this year's Emmy for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Supporting Role. The award was for a riveting, lifelike chase scene through speeding traffic that kicked off Cinemax original series, Banshee. The Encore VFX team, led by Supervisor Armen Kevorkian, made use of cutting-edge animation and tracking tools to composite in most of the cars and to create the nerve-jangling truck crash that helps set the pace for the series. The Award represents the first-ever Emmy for the network.
"We are extremely proud of the VFX division and everyone who contributed to this award-winning sequence," says Bill Romeo, Executive VP for Television, Deluxe, of the department, which continues to grow rapidly under the direction of Tom Kendall, Encore's VP of VFX. "It's great to see the team get this well-deserved recognition."
