Stuttgart, 13th July 2018 – The Emmy award nominations were announced on Thursday. Netflix leads the field with a total of 122 nominations, including the successful series “Lost in Space”. Prof. Juri Stanossek, VFX Supervisor at Mackevision, has been nominated for the Emmy in the category “Outstanding Visual Effects” together with other VFX supervisors.
“I am overwhelmed and incredibly grateful for the nomination. Above all, I am proud of the team whose work laid the foundation for the nomination. I would like to express my deepest thanks to our VFX Producer, Marina Winter, who has done an incredible job” said Juri Stanossek. “35 artists worked on seven episodes over a period of six months and created 75 shots. We are especially proud of the Jupiter spaceship model because it has a strong presence in every episode of the series.”
For Stanossek, this is the second Emmy nomination in the course of his career. In 2012, he received both an Emmy award and an award from the renowned American organization “Visual Effects Society” for his work on the second season of “Game of Thrones”.
Led by the VFX supervisors Jabbar Raisani, Terron Pratt and Marion Spates, Mackevision was one of multiple VFX companies operating worldwide that transformed “Lost in Space” into a superlative fantasy experience. Mackevision provided digitally rendered scenes featuring the computer-generated spaceship Jupiter (including the start sequence, spatial explosion) along with digital creatures and digital environments.
