Golden Eyes Award for the Digital Mill

  • 24.11.2005

We told you about it in September: Le Moulin Numérique, an innovative company supported by Wallimage, opened its doors in Epraves in a dream setting that smells like the land of yesterday. But with solid futuristic ambitions.

Less than two months later, the company has already seen its approach and talent rewarded: it has just won a Golden Eyes Award at the 11th edition of theACF (Audiovisual Creative Fair) which was held in Brussels (Hall of Exhibitions) from November 16 to 19. This event, which has been held since 1986, allows image and sound professionals to discover everything that will soon be in the news in all areas of the audiovisual industry.

Le Moulin Numérique was rewarded for its work in special effects and computer graphics in the field of educational and scientific films.
The company from Rochefort presented at the ACF examples of digital special effects such as 3D matte-painting, Augmented Reality and Camera Mapping as well as synthetic images, all in High Definition. All these works were realized within the framework of its first services for documentary programs of a scientific and historical nature.

The jury noted the particularly innovative character of these works, some of which are the result of research and development collaboration between the company and Belgian university research institutes.

This is good news for the defenders of Wallonia’s high-tech industry, which could well be one of the essential pivots of a salutary revival for the region.
