Baz Luhrmann's Elvis was honored with the Best Visual Effects Award at the Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts Awards. The Industry Luncheon was held on Monday, December 5th in Sydney, Australia.
The Luma Melbourne team, led by DFX Supervisor Adam Hammond, handled major environmental work for recreations of the Hollywood sign in the Hollywood Hills and Graceland. Luma artists worked with both reference photography and data captured on-site in order to bring these iconic settings to life in a way that was both artistic and true to the period. Because these settings carry such a rich, storied history, Luma’s art department and VFX team were tasked with a tightrope act, maintaining historical accuracy while still evoking the fantastical, legendary nature of these locations.
