BAFTA Prize goes for actor Andy Serkis

1 min read

Andy Serkis will be honored next month at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards. The actor, producer and director will then receive the prize for his extraordinary contribution to British cinema, the organization announced on Thursday.

Serkis is praised for his acting, but can primarily call himself a pioneer in the field of creating digital characters. The actor put the so-called motion capture technique on the map in the film world. By means of a special costume with which all his movements were recorded, the actor was able to realistically portray Gollum from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and Caesar from the Planet of the Apes trilogy.

The actor founded a special company to further develop the technology. Serkis is therefore regularly asked as an advisor on film sets.

The prize was previously handed over to Ridley and Tony Scott, John Hurt and the Harry Potter film series, among others. The BAFTAs will be awarded on 2 February in the Royal Albert Hall in London.
