Visual Effects supervisor Steven Eric Hodgson dies

HollywoodNews.com: Steven Eric Hodgson, an accomplished and acclaimed visual effects supervisor for numerous feature films and TV projects, died suddenly June 16 while on the set of the upcoming TV series “Camelot.” Hodgson, who was 50 when he died, had been battling cancer for several years.

Among his recent credits are Charlie St. Cloud, Hot Tub Time Machine, The Uninvited, Vantage Point and the mini-series “Impact.” Hodgson had just begun work on Starz’ “Camelot,” the upcoming series focusing on the King Arthur legend, when he died.

Hodgson was nominated for a Gemini Award – Canada’s highest honors for work in TV – in 2009 for his effects efforts on “Impact,” and in 2004 for “The Collector.” His effects work on “Impact” earned him a Leo Award – celebrating film and TV productions from British Columbia – and “The Collector” netted him a Leo Award nomination.

Born Oct. 6, 1959 in Bellshill, Scotland, Hodgson was based in Vancouver. He is survived by his wife Patricia, children Michael, Lawrence, Madison and Elizabeth, and his brother Craig Hodgson. A funeral for Hodgson will be held July 1 in Cobham, Surrey, in the UK. Hodgson’s memory will also be celebrated at a memorial service in Vancouver later this summer. The family asks that donations in Steve Hodgson’s name be made to the BC Cancer Foundation
