Last night at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, The Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) announced the winners of this year’s awards across Engineering, Creativity & Innovation.

The HPA Awards promote creative artistry in the field of post production, and recognise the achievement of talent, innovation and engineering excellence in the industry.

The Mill is thrilled to have been honoured with the prestigious Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation for The Mill BLACKBIRD® presented by Alistair Green, Executive Creative Director at Team One. The HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation was set up to recognise companies and individuals who have demonstrated excellence, whether in the development of workflow and process to support creative storytelling or in technical innovation.

The Mill’s International EVP Al Thompson comments: "We are thrilled to be awarded the highly sought after Creativity and Innovation honour at this year’s HPA Awards; being recognised and awarded for The Mill Blackbird's pioneering technological creativity is a huge achievement for us. The Mill Blackbird has taken about three years to concept, design and engineer and it really has been a wonderful example of what you can achieve when you get the best minds in the business together.'
