VES 2021 Hall of Fame Inductees

 By NAOMI GOLDMAN

Roy Field (1932–2002) was a visual effects supervisor and director of photography, highly regarded as a special effects legend. He is best known for his work on Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and Superman, which earned him an Academy Special Achievement Award and BAFTA for Visual Effects. 

John P. Fulton, ASC (1902–1966) was a special effects supervisor and cinematographer with a body of work including 250 films spanning nearly four decades, earning him three Academy Awards for Special Effects on Wonder Man, The Bridges at Toko-Ri and The Ten Commandments.

Phil Kellison (1918–2005) was a visual effects supervisor and designer with a 40-year career that ranged from the George Pal Puppetoons to industrial films, commercials and feature films. His specialties include stop-motion animation forced perspective, which he dubbed “Magnascope.” 

Auguste Lumière (1862–1954) and Louis Lumière (1864–1948). The Lumière Brothers were manufacturers of photography equipment, best known for their Cinématographe motion picture system and the short films they produced between 1895 and 1905, which places them among the earliest filmmakers. 

John Whitney, Sr. (1917–1995) was an animator, composer and inventor, widely considered a father of computer animation. He used mechanical animation techniques to create sequences for film and television title sequences and commercials, most notably his collaboration with Saul Bass on the title sequence for Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.
