Emmy Awards 2022: two nominations for DNEG! – DNEG

Our episodic content team earned Emmy nominations for their work on Foundation and Stranger Things!

We are thrilled to announce that our talented visual effects team dedicated to episodic content received two Emmy Award nominations in the Outstanding Special Visual Effects In A Season Or A Movie category for his spectacular work on the Apple TV+ series Foundation and on season 4 of the Netflix series Stranger Things!

Based on Isaac Asimov’s acclaimed science fiction novels, the series Foundation follows a band of exiles in the distant intergalactic future. Our dedicated episodic content team, led by Chris KellerDNEG Visual Effects Supervisor, and Jess BrownDNEG’s visual effects producer, served as the show’s primary visual effects partner, providing 1050 shots throughout the series’ 10 episodes and covering all elements of the visual effects process, including pre-visualization, post-visualization, development of virtual production assets and motion graphics, and our complex visual effects sequences.

Significant footage completed by the team includes the creation of the city of Trantor, the Imperial Palace and the space station, motion graphics work to create the show’s “sandograms”, and much more. Our talented team has already won two awards at the VES Awards for their work on this show.
