DNEG brings home 7th BAFTA for Dune!

Team honoured with ‘Special Visual Effects’ accolade at EE British Academy Film Awards 2022

We couldn’t be prouder of our Dune team for winning the ‘Special Visual Effects’ BAFTA Award tonight.

We were thrilled to see our Dune team honoured with a BAFTA for ‘Special Visual Effects’ at tonight’s ceremony in London. Huge congratulations to Brian Connor, Paul Lambert, Tristan Myles and Gerd Nefzer — and all the superb talent across our studios who helped to bring Denis Villeneuve’s masterpiece to life!

This is the seventh BAFTA win for DNEG in the last eleven years, and DNEG’s second win for a Denis Villeneuve film, following a previous BAFTA win for the DNEG team for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ (2017). It also marks the second win and third nomination for Overall VFX Supervisor Paul Lambert, who previously won for ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and was nominated for Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’ (2018), alongside DNEG VFX Supervisor Tristan Myles. It is the first BAFTA nomination and win for DNEG VFX Supervisor Brian Connor.

This award follows our Dune team’s earlier wins at the 20th Annual VES Awards, where the team scooped 4 awards, including ‘Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature’. Read more about the VES Awards here.

We couldn’t be prouder of our team’s amazing work and talent being recognised at the BAFTAs.

A huge congratulations to all our other nominees, who were singled-out for their work on No Time To Die, The Matrix Resurrections and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, as well as all of our global teams behind our nominated projects – it’s an incredible achievement, and recognition of all the hard work, creativity, and talent they bring to their work every single day.
