F/x guru Hodgson passes away

Industry vet was working on 'Camelot'

Visual effects supervisor Steven Hodgson died June 16 while on the set of the upcoming TV series “Camelot.” Hodgson, 50, had been battling cancer for several years.

He had just begun work on Starz’s “Camelot,” the upcoming series focusing on the King Arthur legend, when he died. His other credits include “Charlie St. Cloud,” “Hot Tub Time Machine,” “The Uninvited,” “Vantage Point” and the miniseries “Impact.”

His effects work on “Impact” earned him a Leo Award, which honors film and TV productions from British Columbia, and he was nominated for a Gemini, Canada’s highest kudos for TV. He also was nominated for a Gemini and a Leo for his work on 2004’s “The Collector.”

Born in Bellshill, Scotland, Hodgson was based in Vancouver.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia, two sons and two daughters and a brother.

A funeral for Hodgson will be held July 1 in Cobham, Surrey, in the U.K. and a memorial service is planned for Vancouver later this summer.
