Studio’s work on
the film’s Quicksilver “Kitchen” scene also nominated for an Academy Award and a
BAFTA Award.
South Australia—Rising Sun
Pictures (RSP) artists were honoured with two awards last night at the 13th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards in Los Angeles.
CG Supervisor Dennis Jones won the VES Award for Outstanding
Virtual Cinematography in a Photoreal/Live Action Motion Media Project for work on the film X-Men: Days of Future Past. He shared the award with Previsualization
Supervisor Austin Bonang, Virtual Production Supervisor Casey
Schatz and Cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel.
RSP Shot Supervisor Adam
Paschke, FX Lead Premamurti Paetsch, Effects Artist Sam Hancock and Effects
Technical Director Timmy Lundin won for Outstanding Effects Simulations in a
Photoreal/Live Action Feature Motion Picture also for X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Days of Future Past also was
nominated for one of the VES Awards’ most coveted
honours, Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Photoreal/Live
Action Feature Motion Picture.
RSP artists were involved in creating the film’s exuberant
“Kitchen” scene where time appears to stand still as the speedy Quicksilver
darts about the Pentagon cafeteria to foil guards attacking a group of mutants.
The scene involved an intricate blend of live action,
computer-generated objects and visual effects. RSP collaborated with VFX
Supervisor Richard Stammers and Director Bryan Singer to bring the scene to life through the production of scores of CG props, including
frying pans, knives, pots of boiling soup, carrots and bullets, as well as the
omnipresent cascades of water droplets. Each of these elements needed to be
rendered in near microscopic detail, placed precisely within the geometry of
the kitchen and choreographed to move and react realistically to lighting,
other objects and characters.
“The two VES Awards represent a team
effort of many months and scores of talented artists and technicians,” said RSP Executive Producer Tony
Clark. “Everyone at RSP is incredibly proud. The complex and
highly detailed work on that sequence is a culmination of over 20 years of
experience in crafting visual effects for our clients, and it’s something we
are continuing in our current work on Pan,
Tarzan and Gods of Egypt.”
