For the 23rd consecutive year, visual effects artists used software from Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) to bring many of 2017's most memorable films and TV shows to audiences worldwide, including this year's five nominees for the Best Visual Effects Oscar.

Autodesk also celebrated the accomplishments of the Shotgun Software team, whose work was recognized with an Engineering Emmy from the Television Academy, as well as Sr. Software Engineer Hans Rijpkema, who received a Scientific and Technical Achievement Award (Sci-Tech) for his contributions to technology developed during his time at Rhythm & Hues visual effects and animation studio.
