Last night, the work of Paul Franklin and his colleagues was recognised once again through his successful award of an Oscar for Visual Effect for their work on the film Interstellar.  This is a phenomenal achievement and is the second Oscar that Paul has been awarded.  In 2010, Paul received a BAFTA and Oscar for the visual effects he and his colleagues created on the film Inception.

This now places Paul and his colleague Andrew Lockley from their company Double Negative, along with their co-creators at SFX Supervisor, as leaders in their field and the Ruskin staff and students are thrilled and proud of this exceptional accolade in the visual effects industry.
