A University of South Wales (USW) graduate has tasted success for the second time this month as part of the team involved in making an Oscar-winning film.

Rosie Walker, who graduated in 2012 from the BA (Hons) Visual Effects and Motion Graphics degree, was part of the team at DNEG which worked on the film Tenet, which scooped the Best Visual Effects award at the  93rd Academy Awards gala on Sunday. The film was also nominated in the Best Production Design category.

The success was the second this month for the film, which won the Special Visual Effects category at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) just a few weeks ago.  The BAFTAs also featured work by a number of other USW graduates, you can read the full details on this link.

Rosie is a former USW VFX lecturer, and now works for DNEG in Vancouver, Canada.

Jack Phillips, Senior Lecturer Visual Effects & Motion Graphics at USW, said: “It’s brilliant to have Rosie’s talents recognised on the award-winning visual effects of Tenet.

“It’s amazing to see her go from strength to strength, from graduating on the course to being recognised by one of the highest honours in Visual Effects.

“Also a past lecturer of the BA (Nons) Visual Effects and Motion Graphics lecturing team, Rosie’s an example of the talent and experience that USW infuses within the course, and for students to learn and be supported from to then forge their own career.”
