took home the Visual Effects BAFTA for its work on SEA MONSTERS A WALKING WITH DINOSAURS TRILOGY.
The award was accepted on behalf of the Framestore team by vfx supervisor Tim Greenwood and animation supervisor Max Tyrie, along with Jamie Campbell (physical effects work) and Jez Gibson-Harris (Crawley Creatures). In a short acceptance speech, Tyrie acknowledged, "This sort of work is done by a huge team, and we all knew that no single member of the team was responsible for the work thank you from all of us."
The British Academy Television Craft Awards were created in 2000, when the decision was taken to give behind-the-scenes talent their own dedicated ceremony. The Awards recognize excellence in the fields of factual, fiction and entertainment and cover costume design, editing, graphic design, make up & hair design, new directing and writing, music, photography and lighting, production design, sound and visual effects.
