The Globe & Mail: Toronto effects firm wins Academy Award. Alias/Wavefront will be presented an Oscar honouring scientific and technical advancements in film-making. It’s about time Canadian special effects shops received some recognition.
Congratulations to everyone I know who works at Alias/Wavefront, even though they probably won’t ever read this. I did a stint at both Discreet Logic and Softimage in MontrÃ©al a while back, and have much respect for those who can handle and enjoy the work in high-end graphics software development. It took me two attempts in that industry to realise that I wasn’t as into it as I had previously thought.
