FuseFX Receives Two 19th Annual VES Awards Nominations


(LOS ANGELES— March 2nd, 2021)

Visual effects artists from FuseFX are currently nominated for two Visual Effects Society (VES Award) for  their work on Golden Globe Winner "I Know This Much Is True" and "Survive."

FuseFX-NY Visual Effects Supervisor Ariel Altman has the unique recognition of receiving not one but two nominations in the same category Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode for two distinct and different productions. Ariel received a nomination for his work on I Know This Much Is True with the client-side team comprising of Eric Pascarelli and Keith Kolder. Ariel receives his second nomination for Survive and shares it with his FuseFX team of Rae Welty (Producer), Caius Wong (CG Supervisor), and Carl Fong (Compositing Supervisor).

Ariel Altman shares his gratitude, " The whole team at FuseFX is so humbled and honored to be nominated for two shows this year.  The opportunity to be part of projects that let us push ourselves and the craft forward doesn’t come along every day.  We don’t take the responsibility lightly.

We could not have excelled without the partnership with everyone on these projects, from planning, production, and post.  Both of these projects presented unique opportunities and challenges.  I Know This Much Is True was all about creating solutions that let Mark Ruffalo’s performance shine through unencumbered. Thanks and congratulations to Eric Pascarelli and Keith Kolder on I Know This Much Is True.

Survive needed that extra push to enhance an already harrowing environment and elevate it to a more heightened cinematic space. Thank you to Mark Pellington and Ed Jones for trusting us with their vision on Survive."

Still from "Survive"

I am so proud and impressed with our New York team for garnering two VES nominations this year. This kind of recognition does not happen without a ton of hard work and a group of people working together like a well-oiled machine.  And it not only speaks to the incredible talent and hard work of the individuals that were nominated, but the environment they have helped to establish in our New York studio.  Award nominations, much less two of them in the same year, do not occur without the whole studio working together to create a culture of teamwork and excellence.  It’s a real credit to the entire New York team." -CEO/Founder Dave Altenau
