FuseFX Wins 2021 HPA for Outstanding VFX (Over 13 episodes)


(LOS ANGELES— November 19th, 2021)

Last night FuseFX won the 2021 HPA for Outstanding Visual Effects – Episodic (Over 13 Episodes) for its work on '9-1-1.' This is the fourth year in a row that FuseFX has won the category!

This year's ceremony had us back celebrating in person. The FuseFX '9-1-1' team received three HPA nominations in the same category in 2019, 2020, 2021. Last season on '9-1-1,' the VFX team created a tsunami that earned them a 2020 HPA award. How do you follow a tsunami? A quake, mudslide and dam break, of course! The work was a massive undertaking, but the team proved they were up for the challenge, delivering brilliant VFX work and bringing home the HPA!

The honors went to Jon Massey (VFX Supervisor), Tony Pirzadeh (VFX Producer), Josephine Noh (DFX Supervisor), Bryant Reif (CG Supervisor), and  Timothy Cairns (Compositing Supervisor).

As a Visual Effects Supervisor we are the ones who appear out front with our names and presentations. But many times we must lead by following, by letting the creative and technical teams do what they do best, what you chose them for. And then what you get is all that brilliant work on the screen and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get an award. The one who steers the ship is not always the one holding the rudder.

So, thank you to all the creative and technical artists out there who helped to make this award win possible. Thank you to FuseFX for giving us the tools and creative space to make this happen. Thank you to the writers and directors and creative team behind 9-1-1 for giving us amazing material to play with. My gratitude can not be overstated." - VFX Supervisor Jon Massey

It was a beautiful night of celebration in the best in post-production.
