Atlantis rises to Gemini Award victory

Monday - December 12, 2005 | by Darren Sumner

The team behind Stargate Atlantis's visual effects has been awarded with one of Canada's highest honors.

Michelle Comens, John Gajdecki, Bruce Woloshyn, Jinnie Pak, Tom Brydon, Josť Burgos, Dan Mayer, and Wes Sargent received the Gemini Award for Best Visual Effects for their work on the spin-off series pilot episode, "Rising." The twentieth annual awards were presented last month by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, recognizing the best in film and television production in Canada.

The two Stargate series earned a total of six nominations this year (story), including nods for Best Writing in a Dramatic Series (Martin Gero) and Best Achievement in Make-Up (Leah Ehman and Todd Masters). Four nominations came in the visual effects category, with "Rising" beating out "The Eye" and the SG-1 episodes "Lost City, Part 2" and "New Order, Part 1."

Congratulations to Rainmaker and the visual effects team! GateWorld received these photos of the Stargate effects team at the Gemini Western Nominee Reception, held November 9 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
