On March 7, 2020, VES Vancouver members put on their dancing shoes and fancy clothes for the VES Vancouver Awards Gala, honoring local nominees and winners of 2020 Visual Effects Society awards.
BOT VFX is proud to have been the Gold Sponsor for this first-ever celebration, attended by more than a hundred industry professionals at the Waterview in downtown Vancouver. The sparkling venue with its expansive view of the waterfront and mountains set the tone for an elegant evening of cocktails, canapes, and dancing into the night.
BOT’s CEO, Hitesh Shah, donned his red bow tie for the special occasion of awarding BOT’s raffle prize, an iPad Pro, to the winner Mitja Mueller-Jend, Compositing TD at Digital Domain in Vancouver. The BOT also had a festive presence in the form of a featured Cosmopolitan cocktail masquerading as “COSMOBOT”.
The Vancouver section of the Visual Effects Society has been active since 2006, giving local VFX artists and production professionals a gathering place for encouragement and inspiration.
Hetal Jain, BOT Executive Producer, recalls: “What a fun night! Congratulations to the nominees and winners of the 2020 VES Awards – Kudos to the VES Vancouver Section (Sue Rowe, Steve Garrard, Matt Krentz and especially Gayle Munro) for putting it all together. We are glad to have been a part and supported it. See you next year!”
