January 17, 2012 by Screenmag
Noting his talent for creating big ambitious VFX films and close relationships with post houses, commercial production company Home.corp is pleased to announce that visual effects director Nick Davis has joined their U.S. and U.K. production company roster for commercials representation worldwide. Davis already has an impressive collection of award winning feature film credits, such as conceptualizing and creating VFX for the Oscar-winning "The Dark Night," "Charlie & The Chocolate Factory," and the first two "Harry Potter" films.
Davis' career in the film industry kicked off after moving to the US to work for the VFX company Introvision. At Introvision, Davis worked his way up from the bottom to become their leading VFX supervisor. As supervisor he oversaw VFX for the 1993 drama "Fearless" and produced for the Academy Award winning film, "The Fugitive."
Following Introvision, Davis decided to go solo working on a number of low budget features to test his talents as screenwriter, first assistant director and second unit director.
In 1995, he returned to the visual effects world, supervising on the films "Batman Forever" and "Chain Reaction." Davis moved back to the UK a year later to supervise "The Avengers" and "Entrapment," and subsequently found himself the VFX master behind the first two films in the colossal Harry Potter blockbuster franchise. Nick’s VFX talents may be seen from the battle fields of "Troy" to the Oompa Loompa’s of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Davis is most recognized for his work on the Oscar winning and critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan epic “The Dark Knight.” The film garnered him an Oscar nomination for visual effects and a Saturn Award win for Best Special Effects.
Davis has received a long list of award nominations including a BAFTA Film Award for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," a VES Award nomination for the motion picture "Troy" and an AFI Award nomination for "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
