Following its success in both the BAFTAs and the VES Awards, London-based Double Negative's visual effects work on Inception has picked up the Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Inception, being a film largely about dreams, relies heavily on visual effects to portray the imaginary worlds of the dreamers. Double Negative provided all the visual effects for the film, including the incredible Paris fold-over sequence, the exploding fortress and Limbo City. 

 Inception Blu-ray: Visual Effects Supervisor Paul Franklin

Double Negative has become a leading player in visual effects production worldwide and has provided visual effects services to over 115 feature films. Paul Franklin, the visual effects supervisor on the film attended the ceremony in the Kodak Theatre to receive the Oscar, along with other members of the Double Negative team.
During his acceptance speech, Franklin said "well, it feels like that top is still spinning", reminding us of the inconclusive ending to one of the most talked about films of 2010, which won four Oscars at the ceremony last night.
