Welcome to the Second Annual Visual Effects Society Awards. We are pleased that you could join us to celebrate the visual effects work done in the last year. With each passing year, the bar is being raised. The quality and seamlessness of the work is exponentially increasing each and every year.

It is with the greatest of pleasure that the Visual Effects Society presents to you its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award.

There is no person on the planet who has had more influence and impact on the contemporary visual effects storytelling than George Lucas. George has his fingerprints on almost every aspect of filmmaking, utilizing visual effects to enhance the storytelling process. George has written, produced and/or directed some of the most important visual effects films of our era including five Star Wars films (the sixth is in post), and three Indiana Jones films.
