Director of Star Wars VII, J.J. Abrams will receive the Visual Effects Society’s Visionary Award at the 13th annual VES Awards, on February 4th at the Beverly Hilton.  Other credits include Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness and Cloverfield.

The Visionary Award recognizes an individual who has “uniquely and consistently employed the art and science of visual effects to foster imagination and ignite future discoveries by way of artistry, invention and groundbreaking work.”
“J.J. Abrams has consistently elevated not just the technical aspect of visual effects, but also the emotional,” said VES board chair Jeffrey A. Okun. “He has redefined the relationship between the viewer and the story – you can easily see this from the epic cult followings of his highly engaging work, a testament to his expert blending of visual effects, evocative characters and a remarkable imagination.”
