The Power of the Dog, powering ahead with BAFTA wins

14 March, 2022

The Power of the Dog has taken out two coveted British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards – Best Film and Best Director for Jane Campion.

On behalf of the entire Alt Group, congratulations to all involved.

Watching a movie we’ve had a part in bringing to life, achieving these accolades is  exciting. Working on a project of this calibre was both humbling and an amazing opportunity to showcase the skills and talent of our VFX professionals – from production, to supervision and across all artist departments.

Power of the Dog

A 2021 Western psychological drama, the Power of the Dog is based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Thomas Savage. The Netflix film follows the charismatic rancher Phil Burbank (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his relationships when his brother George (Jesse Plemons) brings home a new wife, Rose (Kirsten Dunst) and her son Peter (Kobi Smit-McPhee). The film deals with themes such as love, loss, grief, resentment, jealousy and sexuality.
