We want to give a hearty and heartfelt congratulations to the incredible films and filmmakers who have been nominated throughout the 2021 award season. In the last year, we’ve seen creativity flourish like never before and we’re so inspired by the tenacity, resilience and vision that has poured forth from filmmakers, creators, visual effects artists and more. Despite heavy challenges, production and post-production professionals found unique and innovative ways to navigate remote filmmaking and bring their stories to the screen. Whether it was the MLK/FBI team hacking the system to be able to handle massive amounts of archival footage, the Crip Camp and Boys State teams creating successful workflows across multiple states, or the Mank team relying on Productions in Premiere Pro to transition from in-person to remote work. We’re humbled to play a small part in helping bring these stories to life and we’re excited to celebrate all of the nominees who used Creative Cloud tools to craft their films — check some of them out below!
