Australian visual effects and animation studio Animal Logic received the inaugural Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award for Best Visual Effects on Sunday for its work on Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.

 Animal Logic art director Grant Freckelton says the AACTA award acknowledges the amazing work of the whole crew of the 2010 Warner Bros. animated fantasy feature directed by Zack Snyder. It's such an honor to get this award for Guardians celebrating one more time the efforts of those 500 or so local and international artists who created this wonderful film Freckelton says.

Every single shot in the film was a huge technical triumph from the creation of each owl character the creation of our proprietary feather system from the ground up to produce these deep dense feathers and then developing our fluid systems to simulate natural effects like fire and rain Freckelton says. We took all that technology and applied it creatively to an imaginative fantasy world in stereoscopic 3D with almost everything you see generated within the shot and then we put together some really good looking impressive sequences he says.
