HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - Big Screen Entertainment Group's (PINKSHEETS: BSEG) management division is proud to announce that The Deka Bros. have been nominated for a 2012 MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects for their work as Visual Effects Supervisors on the Skrillex megahit, "First of the Year." "First of the Year" was directed by Tony T. Datis, and is also nominated for Electronic Music Video of the year.
"Director Tony T. Datis is really familiar with our style. He brought us on the Skrillex project knowing exactly what he was going to get. It all goes back to his vision, and the smart way he put our skills to use," said The Dekas.
The Deka Bros. recently directed, and created all the visual effects on their first US music video for Insane Clown Posse's "Chris Benoit."
"We are thrilled to be working with such multi-talented artists. The BSEG team first discovered The Deka Bros. at the Cannes film market and distributed their award-winning film, the vampire visual masterpiece 'SODIUM BABIES.' Stephen, Michael and I were so impressed with their work that we signed them as clients under our new management division," said BSEG CEO Kimberley Kates.
The Dekas worked with BSEG as Directors of Photography and Visual Effects Supervisors on the upcoming BSEG sci-fi/monster film, "SUCKER," produced by Kimberley Kates, Stephen Eckelberry and directed by Michael Manasseri.
Their latest work, the new Skrillex video "Make it Bun Dem," featuring Damian Marley will be out soon.
The MTV VMA awards will be held on September 6th.
