Joe Letteri

The GENIE Lifetime Achievement Award rewards a personality of the digital creation industry for significant and lasting contributions to the art and science by way of vision, artistry, invention and innovation. For its edition 2017, the GENIE Awards will celebrate Joe Letteri’s work at Weta Digital.

Joe Letteri is a Senior Visual Effects Supervisor for Weta Digital. He is the recipient of four Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects for his outstanding work on the movies Avatar, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and King Kong. A pioneer in his field, he has won the Academy’s Technical Achievement Award for codeveloping the subsurface scattering technique that brought Gollum to life. This is not the least of his achievement as he also developed specific techniques that have become standardized in the work of VFX supervisors.

 

Joe Letteri and Weta Digital keep improving these techniques and researching new ways of creating visual effects with exceptional photographic quality, larger and more complex shots.

Joe Letteri is currently working with Luc Besson for the most awaited Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and with James Cameron on the three next movies of the Avatar franchise.

Joe Letteri joins Neil Corbould, Dennis Muren (ILM), Jacques Bled and Rodolphe Chabrier (Max Guff) previously awarded from the last two ceremonies of the Digital Creation GENIE Awards.

Pierre Buffin

The GENIE Lifetime Achievement Award rewards a personality of the digital creation industry for significant and lasting contributions to the art and science by way of vision, artistry, invention and innovation. For its edition 2017, the GENIE Awards will celebrate Joe Letteri’s work at Weta Digital.

Pioneer of computer-generated imagery, Pierre Buffin created BUF Compagnie in 1984. His numerous innovations in the VFX and digital animation field make him one of the most respected personalities of the international cinematographic and audiovisual industry. He owns the paternity of the “bullet time effect”, made popular by The Matrix but originally developed for Michel Gondry’s video clips and the “camera mapping” techniques which allowed David Fincher to introduce a new visual language in Fight Club.

Pierre Buffin accompanied some of the greatest international filmmakers, such as Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), Kenneth Branagh (Thor), Ang Lee on Life of Pi (2013 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects), Luc Besson and Wong Kar Wai for The Grandmaster (2013 Golden Horse Award for Best Visual Effects), and allowed them to express their most singular visual ideas.

Pierre Buffin is currently working with David Lynch on the new season of Twin Peaks, one of the most anticipated shows of 2017.
