2018 Sci-Tech Awards Honour Houdini

Mark Elendt and Side Effects Software won an Oscar for 25 years of work on the program.

Patrick Stewart hosted this year’s annual Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony, an untelevised dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The actor joined many talents for a three-hour program to honour “film magicians” and present nine awards for hardware and software innovations, along with three Oscar statuettes. Two of the Oscars went to the creator and developer of the Houdini visual effects and animation system. Mark Elendt and Side Effects Software won an Oscar for 25 years of work on the program. 

That’s how it happened:
