Anthony Devine won Best Design at the Scottish Bafta New Talent Awards for his excellent work on Boat!

It was a great night and it was amazing to see Anthony  get recognition for his matte paintings on the film. Check out this behind the scenes video to see him at work!

The category of Design was new to the awards this year and we were honoured to have been among the other nominees.

I met Anthony by chance many years ago when i was looking for a matte painter to work on Boat. I was clicking through endless profiles on a site called CGsociety, most of the work featured were from international artists. I was desperate to work with someone in Scotland or at the very least the UK. I bookmarked an image that that stuck a chord with me, it was called The New World, and after nervously clicking on their bio i was shocked to see the artist was based in Stirling. Luckily Anthony was interested in working on the project and It was fantastic to see him receive his award from Bafta.

Thanks to all at the Scottish Baftas for a great night. We had smiley hangovers at work the next day!
