BAFTA Nominations

Real SFX are truly thrilled to have been nominated twice for a BAFTA Craft award for our work on both His Dark Materials and Good Omens in the Special, Visual and Graphic effects category!

We share our His Dark Materials nomination with FRAMESTORE, PAINTING PRACTICE, and RUSSELL DODGSON.

Based on author Philip Pullman’s beloved trilogy, His Dark Materials follows Lyra, a brave young woman from another world. Lyra’s quest to find her kidnapped friend leads her to uncover a sinister plot of a secret organization, encounter extraordinary beings and protect dangerous secrets.

It has been an absolute pleasure working on this spectacular show with a very talented production team. Many thanks to Badwolf, Jane Tranter, Julie Gardener, Dan McCulloch & Laurie Borg, and a special thanks to the creative team Joel Collins and Robin Paiba.

His Dark Materials TV Series has been nominated for 5 BAFTA and TV Craft Awards in: Costume Design, Special, Visual & Graphic FX, Sound, Photography & Lighting, and Titles. Good Luck All!

 

Congratulations to MILK VFX and GARETH SPENSLEY at MOLINARE who we are delighted to share the nomination with for Good Omens.

Thank you to the immensely talented Neil Gaiman, Douglas MacKinnon and all the Good Omens crew that helped to bring Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s story to television for Amazon Prime Video and BBC Studios. Good Omens stars a cast led by David Tennant & Michael Sheen with Adria Arjona, Miranda Richardson, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Jon Hamm, and Frances McDormand as the voice of God.

The apocalyptic fantasy series Good Omens was scripted by Neil Gaiman, based on the 1990 novel he co-wrote with the late Terry Pratchett. Douglas Mackinnon directed the show which originally launched on Amazon Prime last May. David Tennant and Michael Sheen star as Crowley and Aziraphale, an angel and a demon, who have lived on Earth among the humans since The Beginning, discover that the forces of Heaven and Hell are preparing for the Final Battle. Unwilling to give up their comfortable lives, they pledge to join forces to defeat the Antichrist and save the world.
