Why Are Facebook Profile Pictures Green?

"Well the company behind the Life of Pi's stunning visual effects, which made the movie possible, Rhythm & Hues went bankrupt as the film just passed the billion dollar mark in global ticket sales. The 3D & VFX (visual effects) companies that make the Hollywood blockbuster movies possible, sign on to bad deals typically at a loss, the Hollywood production companies walk away with profits, and artists who dedicate their lives to their craft get short changed on salary, over-time and eventually job security. The green is a form of solidarity and protest for change in our industry."


We at BW Films would like to offer our gratitude and support to the Visual Effects Industry and their artists. Your work inspires us to dream.

And The Telly Award Goes To...BW FILMS!

We are very pleased to announce that our video for Dell and Nvidia was just awarded a 2013 Telly Award! You can check out the video, cast, crew, and objectives below. Thank you to everyone who helped make this video. We are very proud of it.

Dell and Nvidia tasked BW Films with creating a high quality video to be showcased at the Autodesk University Conference in Las Vegas later this month. The key objectives for this piece were simple. It needs to be engaging to capture the audience's attention as they walk by Dell's booth and it also needs to create an emotional connection between the consumer and Dell/Nivida. We are proud to say we feel we accomplished that with this video and look forward to more opportunities just like this one. What story does your business have to tell? If you're not sure reach out to us and we will help!
