2018

VES member Thilo Ewers (1981-2018), colleague, friend, husband and father of three was taken away from his loved ones and the work he loved way too early. 

Known for his work on LIVE BY NIGHT, FAST & FURIOUS 7, JUSTICE LEAGUE, XXX3, OBLIVION, HUGO, GAME OF THRONES and THE WALKING DEAD, Thilo joined PIXOMONDO in 2008 as a matte painter and compositor. He soon became a Lead Environment Artist and later Environment Supervisor. In 2012, after 3 years in the Los Angeles office, he returned to PIXOMONDO's Stuttgart office to work on GAME OF THRONES for which he received an Emmy and a VES Award for his environment supervision. Back in 2010 he also won a VES award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Student Project.
 
As VFX Supervisor, Thilo worked with a team of 80 artists in Stuttgart and will be deeply missed by everyone who were fortunate enough to know and work with him.
