Framestore Gets BAFTA Nomination For 'War Horse'

LONDON — Framestore’s ( feature film visual effects have received attention from BAFTA in the form of a “Special Visual Effects” nomination, this time for the studio’s work on Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse.”
The BAFTA nomination comes on the heels of Framestore’s 3 VES nominations, including one for “War Horse.”
As the sole provider of visual effects for the film, Framestore’s visual effects team, led by Ben Morris, Mike Mulholland, Chris Zeh and  Duncan Burbidge, delivered over 200 shots. This included adding a mess of barbed wire and other painful detritus to the heroic horse to make scenes even more powerful and emotive. The team also created entirely-CG horses for a few select shots.
This 2011 nomination follows last year’s BAFTA nomination for Christian Manz’s visual effects work on 2010’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.”
