Earlier this year, FuseFX won a 2015 VES Award for
Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Photoreal/Live
Action Broadcast Program for American
Horror Story
. Its artists also received a nomination for Outstanding
Compositing in a Photoreal/Live Action Broadcast Program.
“This award is the result of a lot of hard work, dedication
and creativity on the part of our entire team,” said FuseFX CEO David Altenau. “We
thank the Academy for this great honor; we also thank executive producer Ryan
Murphy and his team for giving us the opportunity to contribute to their
brilliant show.”

FuseFX has overseen visual effects for American Horror Story since the show’s premier in 2011 and its role
has grown with each new season. The episode “Edward Mordrake, Part 2” centers
on an English nobleman and his quest to add a unique freak to his
retinue. VFX featured in the episode included Mordrake, who sports a
second face on the back of his head; Twisty, a macabre clown who lost his lower
jaw to a shotgun blast; and Bette and Dot Tattler, conjoined twins identical in
every respect except for their divergent personalities. (Both characters are
played by actress Sarah Paulson.)
