A few days before the César & Techniques
The vote for the 2024 César & Techniques Trophy will close on January, 8th ! The Yard is extremely proud to have been selected by the Technical Industries Committee of the Academy of Arts and Techniques of Cinema.
The French trade magazine Mediakwest recently wrote about the upcoming César & Techniques Trophy and the César & Techniques Innovation Award. As the article stated, French audiovisual service providers have talent, and the selection committee wanted to reflect the diversity of proposals available to the cinema industry by selecting a record number of 19 companies competing for its prestigious awards.
The two winning companies will be elected by all those eligible for the six Technical César awards, all production and post-production directors of films competing for the Best Film César in 2024, the nominees for the Technical César of the past two years, as well as the leaders of member companies of Ficam. The secure online vote, by secret ballot, has opened on December 28, 2023, at noon and will close on January 8, 2024, at 7 pm, under the supervision of a bailiff.
We are extremely proud at The Yard to see that our studio has been selected for the César & Techniques Trophy, along with 12 other companies. 2023 has been a very special year to our studio.
We have contributed to wonderful projects with our VFX work, whether for international productions such as ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny‘, which was presented at the recent Cannes Film Festival, and ‘John Wick : Chapter 4‘, or ambitious productions directed by renowned French directors, including ‘Second Tour‘, ‘Les Indesirables‘, and ‘Father and Soldier‘.
We couldn’t be more grateful to the industry for their recognition at the 2023 Cesar Awards for Best Visual Effects on ‘Notre Dame on Fire‘, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, and the 2023 Genie Award for Best Environment for ‘Enola Holmes 2‘.
Winning the call for the France 2030 project ‘La Grande Fabrique de l’Image’ was a key milestone that allowed us to deploy further our strategy to place the French VFX industry on the global map and contribute to developing VFX in regions such as Montpellier.
