Alain Lachance, recently vfx supervisor at A24, had the honor of winning the prize for the best visual effects for his work as a vfx supervisor on the film Hochelagua, Terre des Âmes. Congratulations!
It is an honor to count as alchemist Alain Lachance. He is an important figure in the development of the visual effects market in Montreal, particularly for his work as the founder of Mokko Studio. He has a great experience on several important projects and it is a real pleasure to work with him.
It was with great pride that Jean-François Ferland and Catherine Nadeau sold Alchemy 24 on May 11th. In a context of growth and sharing of resources, but especially the share of corporate values, chemistry is natural between the two companies. Alchemy 24 remains an independent entity of Rodéo FX. The alchemists will keep their positions and the studio will not be moved. It was important for Catherine and Jean-François to sell to a Quebec company that pays meticulous attention to quality and for whom the well-being of employees is a priority.
Alchemy24’s team was at the great movie premier of Devil’s Gate, a Sci-Fi / Thriller movie. The team worked pretty hard on that project so it’s a good ending to celebrate the whole week-end in New-York together.!
Alchemy 24 wishes to congratulate all the artisans and technicians who have worked on Just the End of the World for the many nominations for the Canadian Screen Awards, with special mention for Xavier and his extraordinary work.
We also want to congratulate the make-up artists who are also among the nominees! We wish you a well deserved victory!
Arrival is in good position in the pre-selection list of the Oscar academy awards for Best Visual Effects. We are very proud of our contribution on over 140 shots! Crossing fingers (and toes!) for what’s coming next. The nominations will be made public on January 24th, 2017.
Quebec Cinéma is awarding an Iris for best visual effects at the 2017 gala. This great initiative will help in setting forth the contribution of VFX in today’s Quebec filmmaking.
New members were recently recruited to meet the increasing demand.
A warm welcome to Wesley Lemieux, Alain Morin and Philippe Cournoyer!
Just the End of the World was chosen to represent Canada in the next run for the Oscars. Hail to Xavier! It is a real pleasure for all of our team to work with you.
Our Alchemists went shooting arrows last November 20th. A marvellous match causing many funny anecdotes.
