At the Scientific and Technical Awards 2017 | 2018, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, Sir Patrick Stewart invited Kim Davidson and Mark Elendt to the stage to accept the Academy Award of Merit for SideFX's creation and development of the Houdini visual effects and animation system. 

With more than twenty years of continual innovation, Houdini has delivered the power of procedural methods to visual effects artists, making it the industry standard for bringing natural phenomena, destruction and other digital effects to the screen.

In the same ceremony, Sir Patrick Stewart also presented a Scientific and Engineering Award to Jeff Lait, Mark Tucker, Cristin Barghiel and John Lynch for their contributions to the design and architecture of the Houdini visual effects and animation system. 

Houdini’s dynamics framework and workflow management tools have helped it become the industry standard for bringing natural phenomena, destruction and other digital effects to the screen.

Congratulations to all of the Houdini artists who share in this amazing achievement. Houdini is and always will be a product of your hard work and feedback which makes it possible for the R&D team to write such great code.
