It was a big night for the visual effects industry and an epic night for The Mill with four VES Awards! The 12th annual VES awards were held in Los Angeles last night to recognize the best-of-the-best in visual effects artistry as deemed by a jury of the industry's top professionals. Comedian Patton Oswalt hosted, celebs like Sandra Bullock, Pharrell Williams and Johnny Knoxville presented and talented VFX artists celebrated the recognition of their hard work. Congratulations to all the winners!
