    ‘Oppenheimer,’ Sphere Among HPA Awards Winners – The Music news

    Christopher Nolan’s epic Oppenheimer topped the feature competition at the annual HPA Awards for postproduction, with Jennifer Lame winning the award for outstanding editing and Fotokem’s Kostas Theodosiou and Kristen Zimmerman claiming the prize for color grading.

    Tuesday at the Television Academy’s Wolf Theatre, additional winners in the feature categories included John Wick: Chapter 4 for sound; Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse for color grading in an animated movie; and Avatar: The Way of Water, whose team at Weta FX collected the VFX prize. (The event’s eligibility period ran from September 2022 to September 2023.)

    Paramount Pictures’ work on Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 classic The Godfather won the new category for achievement in restoration. Series honorees included Barry, House of the Dragon and The White Lotus.

    During the ceremony, Sphere Entertainment Co, the company behind the recently opened Sphere entertainment venue in Las Vegas, received the Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation. The jury recognized the venue and its related production technologies and workflow, “which introduced an exhilarating new type of immersive entertainment and shared audience experience.”

    Engineering Excellence Awards were presented to Adobe for the Text-Based Editing feature in its Premiere Pro editing software; Flanders Scientific for its XMP550 55-inch UHD resolution HDR and SDR reference mastering monitor; and Kino Flo, for its Mimik 120 image-based lighting fixture that can synchronize to an XR virtual production volume to provide foreground lighting. Additionally, stYpe received an honorable mention for StypeLand XR, a plugin designed to enable the mapping of graphics into LED panels for XR volumes.

    As an acknowledgment of the challenging year, the presentation included an HPA-produced short, “Tribute to Post.”
