'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'T.S. Spivet' Among 3D Society Award Winners
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy won the Lumiere trophy for best live action 3D feature, topping the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society’s Creative Arts Awards, Wednesday night at Warner Bros. Studios.
Also during the evening, Academy Award nominated director Jean-Pierre Jeunet received the Society’s Harold Lloyd Filmmaker Award, which has previously gone to such 3D visionaries as James Cameron and Ang Lee. Additionally, the award for best 3D independent feature went to Jeunet's drama The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet.
Winners in feature categories included Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which topped the category for stereography in a live action movie; 300: Rise of an Empire, for best 2D to 3D conversion; and X-Men: Days of Future Past for best 3D sequence of the year.
The Lego Movie was honored for best animated 3D feature and to How to Train Your Dragon 2 for best stereography in an animated feature. Disney’s Feast was selected as this year’s best animated short.
Also during the ceremony, Sky, Atlantic Productions and David Attenborough were honored with the Sir Charles Wheatstone Award for education and distinguished achievement in 3D storytelling. These participants also collected the trophy for best 3DTV historical documentary for David Attenborough’s National History Museum Alive 3D.
Jason Brenek of The Walt Disney Company was presented with the Society’s first Founders Award for his role in creating the organization in 2009.
