Acceptance Speech: VISUAL EFFECTS

SPEECH BY: Paul Lambert, Tristan Miles, Brian Connor, Gerd Nefzer

FILM: "Dune"

Paul Lambert:  Oh, my goodness.  Thank you to the members of the Academy for this amazing award.  None of this would have been possible without the truly inspirational, Denis Villeneuve.  Thank you to my producer Brice Parker, Jason Garber; all the producers:  Mary, Cale, Herb, Joe, and Josh; Tanya Lapointe, and all of the other heads of departments.  And, of course, the amazing cast and crew on the show. 


VFX is a team effort of hundreds of people around the world.  So huge congratulations to all the artists and production from DNEG, Wylie Co., and Rodeo FX.  To my amazing, wonderful, beautiful partner Max, and my incredible boys, Boston and Jackson, up there in the rafters right now.  I love you all. 


Tristan Myles:  Special thank you to my wife, Kirsty; our two girls, Isabella and Eloisa, for all their support.  And, of course, the outstanding work from all the artists at DNEG for putting us here tonight.  Thank you.
