At the 17th annual Visual Effect Society awards, Sidney Kombo- the Congo born animator worn an award for his works on the Avengers Infinity: Thanos.

As defined by the VES website, “this award is to honour the overall performance and technical execution of a single animated character in a Photoreal (i.e., live action) Feature. All entrants must have contributed directly to the performance of the character itself (e.g. voicing, animating, rigging, texturing, or lighting, but not environment, compositing or layout). The character may not include live action elements unless they do not significantly affect the performance.”

The Avengers Infinity: Thanos won four (4) awards which also marked the first time a Marvel movie has claimed the top prize for Outstanding Visual Effects.

CGAfrica congratulates Sidney on this incredible feat and wish him success on the soon to be released Avengers: Endgame.
