Singapore – The unique “photographic” look and top-notch animation by Industrial Light & Magic helped Rango clinch the Best Animated Feature at the 84th Annual Academy Awards held earlier this week.
Gore Verbinski’s Rango is the director and ILM’s first-ever animated feature. The company best known for its visual effects work previously collaborated with Verbinski on the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Each film earned an Academy Award nomination, and won Best Visual Effects with the second installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
