Annie Chang and Paul Devevec

Representatives from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the ACES community recently attended the SMPTE Awards Gala in Hollywood. ACES Co-chair Annie Chang and the Academy’s Science and Technology Council Co-chair Paul Debevic, accepted the Workflow Systems Medal on behalf of the ACES community and all those who have helped in the development of ACES.

The Workflow Systems Medal, established in 2012 and sponsored by Leon D. Silverman, honors the recipient by recognizing outstanding contributions related to the development and integration of workflows, such as integrated processes, end-to-end systems or industry ecosystem innovations that enhance creativity, collaboration, efficiency or novel approaches to the production, post-production or distribution process.

Many thanks to SMPTE and Leon D Silverman for this honor, and thanks to the many ACES contributors and users who work with ACES daily on-set, and in their facilities.
