Nolan to receive VES Visionary Award in January

Two days before he picks up his Modern Master Award in Santa Barbara, Christopher Nolan will accept the Visual Effects Society’s first-ever Visionary Award in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter has the complete story.

Visual Effects Awards Committee Chair Jeffrey A. Okun says, “His body of work inspires and he continues to push the envelope both technically and in storytelling. Given the amazing work he’s already created in such a short span of time, he is absolutely the best person to receive our inaugural Visionary Award.”


Nolan’s next film, The Dark Knight Rises, opens July 20, 2012. For all the news about the movie you’ll ever need, keep your eyes on Batman on Film!
