Apr 24,2019
Korean visual effects (VFX) house Dexter Studios said Tuesday that it has received the Best Visual Effects award for its work on the Chinese blockbuster “The Wandering Earth” at the Beijing International Film Festival.

The company scooped the prize together with other VFX studios behind the Chinese sci-fi movie, including More VFX and Pixomondo, during the closing ceremony of the eight-day festival on Saturday.

“We were credited with our VFX techniques in the Chinese film market,” said an official from Dexter, one of two film studios that contributed to the Korean box-office smash hit “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds.”

Directed by Frant Gwo, “The Wandering Earth” is a doomsday film that portrays people pulling together to save the planet. It hit Korean screens last Thursday and has accumulated an audience of 15,398 as of Monday.
