Disney’s PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST was the big winner for Industrial Light & Magic at the 5th Annual VES Awards, winning in all six categories for which it was nominated, including Outstanding Visual Effects, Saturday night (Feb. 11, 2007) at the Kodak Grand Ballroom in Hollywood.
“There was some amazing ‘snap, crackle and pop’ effects work on display last night,” said Eric Roth, exec director of the VES. “This past year --with technological and artistic advances aplenty -- the ‘did you see that?’ bar was set higher than ever and this year’s crop of visual effects winners cleared it with room to spare.”
