VES to honor Kennedy, Marshall

Duo to receive lifetime achievement awards

The Visual Effects Society has named Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall as its 2009 lifetime achievement award honorees.

Either individually or working as a team, Kennedy and Marshall have produced many of the most notable vfx hits of the last three decades, including the four Indiana Jones films, “E.T.,” “Jurassic Park” and “The Sixth Sense.”

VES prexy Eric Roth cited the pair for using visual effects technology creatively and for their use of vfx “not only to tell a story more creatively, but also to have a more positive impact on the all-important bottom line.”

The seventh annual VES Awards will be presented at the Century Plaza Hotel in Beverly Hills on Feb. 21.
