Gravity director wins award

LOS ANGELES: Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron is to be honoured by Hollywood’s Visual Effects Society. Cuaron will receive the society’s visionary award at the 12th annual VES ceremony on 12 February in Los Angeles. “Alfonso pushes the known boundaries of film-making,” VES chairman Jeffrey A Okun said. Gravity is expected to be among 2014’s Oscar contenders. Cuaron’s other films include Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men. “He has been at the forefront in using visual effects to tell remarkable, highly nuanced stories that change the way we think about what is possible to achieve,” Mr Okun said.–BBC
