Visual Effects Society Inducts New Fellows
Visual effects supervisor Mark Stetson received a BAFTA (British Academy) award for visual effects in his debut effort, The Fifth Element. He also won an Academy Award and a second BAFTA award for visual effects in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Mr. Stetson founded his own models and miniature company, which later was purchased by Digital Domain.
Academy Award winner Ray Feeney is president and founder of RFX, Inc. He has pioneered numerous new technologies for the visual effects industry that have become industry standard techniques and are currently in use to produce visual effects for feature films, television shows and commercials.
The Fellows were announced at the Annual 2012 VES Membership Meeting, September 27 at the Academy’s Pickford Center.
