Planet Power wins “Best 3D Documentary – International” at Lumiere Awards (Los Angeles)
Los Angeles (California), February 11, 2018 – On January 30, the Advanced Imaging Society held its tenth annual Lumiere Awards ceremony at the Steven J. Ross Theater on the Warner Bros. studio lot.
Pascal Vuong (co-director and producer of Planet Power) stepped on the stage to receive the award for “Best 3D Documentary – International”, in company of US producer Christian Fry.
The Lumiere™ Awards recognize outstanding international achievement in the creation of immersive storytelling using advanced visual technologies. The Society honors content and experiences produced for film, television, advertising, gaming, mobile, online and more.
This marks the second time that Planet Power brings home a Lumiere Award, the first one being presented only a few months ago at the Stereopsia Lumiere Awards, where the movie won for “Best 3D Creative Documentary”.
Planet Power explores the history of electricity – from the first spark created by man’s hand to today’s industrial power plants. We meet scientists who changed the world, like Faraday, Franklin, and Tesla and we glimpse the future, as Solar Impulse becomes the first plane to complete a round-the-world flight powered only by the sun. With a mix of chalk animation, CGI, archival footage and spectacular aerials, the film also explores the challenges ahead: how to meet the growing energy needs of our industrialized world, while also protecting the health of our planet.
