Does anyone know who is nominated for the Technical and Scientific Academy Awards this year?

I've tried Googling it, and all I find is info about the SciTech 2011 winners...

Has the list of SciTech nominees been announced yet?

Interesting how 3 Stop-Motion films are nominated for best animated film nowadays...well deserved though! ParaNorman was amazing!

It's probably the first time for me that I actually saw all the films nominated for the VFX Oscars. I think The Hobbit or Life of Pi will get it, though I'm leaning a little bit more towards Life of Pi.

Unfortunately I haven't seen any of the animated short films :(

Paperman is one the best short I saw last year. I do hope it wins.

And of al lthe movies nominated for best animation I think Paranorman should get it.


[ SPOILER - Click to reveal ]
Spoiler:

The scene with Agatha and Norman at the end was amazing,
the scene where norman finds out that the town elders had linched a kid like him packed one hell of an emotional punch. (I loved when he asked "How could you?")

I agree about Paranorman. It was amazing and I think it deserves plenty of awards.

One question. Who and how do they decide what companies get the award for each movie?
If you look at the credits of any CG heavy movie there are several post production companies involved. How is it determined which company is eligible to get the award? Number of shots? Type of shots? Was it in the contract when they bid for it?

If someone can shed some light on this it would be awesome.

It's generally not the studios themselves that earn the award, but the VFX supervisors. But basically if you watch the nominations presentation you will even see for one of the best picture nominations it listed the film and said nominees to be determined. That is because the team hasn't provided who they want to list as their nominees to the academy. it isn't the academy that makes the decision it is the individual film companies who submit their films for candidacy.

Thanks for that link.

Always interesting to see who wins the Sci-Tech Oscars.

Smile Interesting sidenode

Quote: To Theodore Kim, Nils Thuerey, Markus Gross and Doug James for the invention, publication and dissemination of Wavelet Turbulence software.

This technique allowed for fast, art–directable creation of highly detailed gas simulation, making it easier for the artist to control the appearance these effects in the final image.



On an interesting sidenode: Nils Thuerey is/was a Blender 3D developer who contributed the fluid simulation and the smoke simulation.

The nomination goes to the senior creative crew members in the visual effects department. Companies and producers are not eligible. The nominees should include the senior VFX supervisor and up to three additional names which can include additional VFX supervisors responsible for major pieces of work on the show, the animation director and the special effects supervisor. The list of names put forwards is determined by the overall producers of the movie, usually in consultation with the VFX supervisor. All potential nominees must provide a summary of the work that they did and all long-listed productions must make a presentation to the Academy's VFX branch at the "bakeoff" event held in early January. You can tell that I've done this before ;-)

Yes, for me, ParaNorman was one of the few movies last year that were compelling from every angle; visually, storywise, emotionally, entertainment and also funny in some parts.
Remembering the scene you described actually gave me goosebumps.

Spielberg vs Ang Lee mostly.

No Christopher Nolan in the mix... hmmm.
