Solo: A Star Wars Story Nominated for Visual Effects Academy Award
Solo: A Star Wars Story better find its best tuxedo in Lando’s cape closet, because it is heading to the Oscars! The film was just nominated for the Visual Effects Award at this year’s Academy Awards! ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) continues to set the bar in visual effects brilliance, and it is nice to see them acknowledged once again. Listed on the nomination are Rob Bredow, Patrick Tubach, Neal Scanlan, and Dominic Tuohy.
Visual Effects Supervisor Rob Bredow watched the nomination announcement with his family! High fives all around as he tweeted their reaction.
