The nominees for the 2011 HPA Awards have been announced by the Hollywood Post Alliance. The Awards recognize the achievements of those individuals who work behind the scenes with ingenuity and creativity to create motion pictures commercials and television programming. The nominees in the 12 craft categories were chosen from a field of talented and innovative entries in color grading editing sound and compositing. This year’s winners will be announced during a gala evening on November 10 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles California. HPA president Leon Silverman says “We are proud to be able to honor the incredibly creative work and the artistic achievement of our HPA Awards Nominees. With more submissions than ever before this year’s nominations represent the best of the best. These awards shine light on the amazing work that post-production contributes that is too often overshadowed by the focus on other deserving aspects of the filmmaking process. With the HPA awards we are able to focus on the deep contributions that post-production makes to help tell the stories that move audiences. We congratulate our nominees and celebrate the work of the entire post-production industry.” For complete information including a list of the nominees go to www.hpaawards.net.
