The Mill is very proud to announce that Walmart ‘Famous Visitors’ took home the award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial at the 19th Annual VES Awards.
We collaborated with Publicis New York (Dept W) and Wayne McClammy of Hungry Man to create the galaxy-famous spot for Walmart, demonstrating the out-of-this-world convenience of Walmart Pick Up that aired at Super Bowl LIV.
The Visual Effects Society (VES) honours outstanding visual effects work and the artists who created them. Every year, it’s a highlight within the VFX community, celebrating the creative skill and technical achievements of the industry. VES winners were announced at a virtual celebration livestream event on April 6th, 2021.
