VFX firm plays major role in five features nominated for Golden Globes.

To be working with industry legends like Richard Donner, Mel Gibson, Darren Aronofsky and Sylvester Stallone is a real privilege and testament to the standard of work LOOK Effects prides itself on.

LOOK Effects (http://www.lookeffects.com), Hollywood’s leading visual effects boutique, is headed into this year’s award season with high hopes for its recently completed projects. The company, which just launched its design division The Captain, has been actively involved in some of 2006’s most talked-about films and has completed major work on five of the movies nominated for the upcoming 2007 Golden Globe Awards.

LOOK Effects’ 2006 feature credit list includes:

Blood Diamond (Golden Globe Nominee)

The Fountain (Golden Globe Nominee)

Apocalypto (Golden Globe Nominee)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (Golden Globe Nominee)

As award season gathers pace, two of the movies most favored to sweep the board in the visual effects’ categories are Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain and Disney’s juggernaut Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. In both movies, LOOK completed more than 50 shots and was one of the lead vendors on the project.

LOOK Effects also recently completed work on the much hyped Richard Donner re-cut of Superman II and Rocky Balboa. In both features, LOOK was the sole vendor on the project and worked on over 175 shots.

“It is fantastic to be involved in so many of this year’s most talked about features,” said Mark Driscoll, President and Founder of LOOK Effects. “To be working with industry legends like Richard Donner, Mel Gibson, Darren Aronofsky and Sylvester Stallone is a real privilege and testament to the standard of work LOOK Effects prides itself on.”

“2006 was a great year for LOOK Effects. We more than doubled the size of our facility and staff and recently added a design division, The Captain, to better serve our clients. I’m confident that 2007 will be an even bigger and better year for LOOK Effects, our clients and their projects.”
