Life of Pi wins Academy Award for Best Visual Effects

Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Visual Effects, "Life of Pi" is the highlight in the film career of David Lauer, Co-Visual Effects Supervisor on the film.


Bill Westenhofer. Lubo Hristov. David Lauer. Gullaume Rocheron. Depending on your beliefs, you may or may not believe that God created the heavens and earth in seven days — but I can say with some certainty that those men, a quartet of visual effects supervisors and designers (along with many other talented people) created the wondrous sights of ‘Life of Pi.’ It took them a lot more than seven days, though.
