Quantum Special Effects, industry leaders in stage, indoor and close-proximity pyrotechnics, are partnering with the UK Music Video Awards 2013 to sponsor the Best VFX in a Video award at the UKMVAs on October 28th.

Voted Special Effects Company of the Year in 2012 and 2013, Quantum provided effects for over 300 shows across the globe in 2012, covering every major continent on shows including Katy Perry at the IPL opening concert in Chennai, India, the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore, and the London 2012 Olympics. Working alongside the Olympic opening ceremony creative teams, QSFX developed bespoke effects that contributed to the show being hailed the ‘best opening ceremony ever’. Quantum’s in-house engineers and designers produced the now iconic pyrotechnic waterfall on the Olympic rings, managed the flames, pyro, confetti and bubble effects throughout the ceremony and were also heavily involved in the Paralympic Opening Ceremony.

Quantum have recently developed memorable effects for ITV’s Dancing On Ice, rRihanna’s unforgettable X Factor performance, David Walliams jet pack on The 100th Royal Variety Performance and Graham Norton’s BBC1 Christmas Special show.

Shaun Barnett, managing director of Quantum Special Effects Ltd, says: “Quantum prides itself in its experienced team of designers, visualisation artists, engineers, project mangers and technicians to deliver clients the highest quality service as well as safe and spectacular bespoke effects. We’re very pleased to be sponsoring this years MVA’s and to be celebrating the UK’s best talent in the industry.”

Best VFX in a Video will be presented, with all the other MVAs, at the UK Music Video Awards 2013 on Monday, October 28th at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre in London. Nominations for the awards are here – and tickets available for the awards ceremony and the aftershow via the UK Music Video Awards website.
