VFX studio Milk has won an Emmy for Hartswood Films/BBC’s Sherlock at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.
Milk’s work on Sherlock was recognised by the Academy for outstanding special and visual effects in a supporting role in ninety-minute Sherlock special episode The Abominable Bride alongside special effects company Real SFX.
Milk created over 100 VFX shots for the special which is set in both Victorian London and the present day.
Milk’s work included enhancing and perfecting Victorian London, Sherlock’s cliff top scene at the Reichenbach Falls and the ‘freeze frame’ sequence in which Sherlock enters his mind palace to dissect a shooting.
Milk’s CEO Will Cohen said: “We are honoured and humbled to have our television and film work recognised right across the 2016 awards season with an Oscar, a BAFTA and now an Emmy Award! It’s a truly amazing way to begin our fourth year in business and testament to the hard work and dedication of our talented team at Milk. "
