Cinematography Grad Wins International Award for Technical Excellence

NFTS Cinematography graduate, Jannicke Mikkelsen, has won this year’s IMAGO International Cinematography Award for Technical Excellence. Jannicke said of her achievement: “I am so honoured; this is the most prestigious award a cinematographer can wish to receive for their work and I simply can't believe this award has my name engraved on it.” 

Jannicke works as a VR film director merging her background in cinematography and stereography (the depiction of 3D objects by projection onto a 2D surface). She is internationally known for her work with the band, Queen and Adam Lambert on their Virtual Reality film “VR The Champions” (2017), which is the first VR film to capture a live concert in flying 360 degree 3D. She has also worked on Sir David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive VR and his VR Experience, Cocos: Shark Island.

Jannicke’s ground breaking VR work led to her being recognised as one of Norway’s most influential women in tech of 2017. Her stereography titles include Paramount Picture’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2012).

Other winners on the night included:

Fiction: Seamus McGarvey, BSC for his work on Nocturnal Animals

TV Drama: Fabian Wagner, BSC for his work on Game Of Thrones -The winds of winter.

Documentary: Łukasz Żal, PSC for the documentary Ikona.
