Quantum Special Effects, industry leaders in stage, indoor and close-proximity pyrotechnics, are partnering with the UK Music Video Awards 2013 to sponsor the Best VFX in a Video award at the UKMVAs on October 28th.
Voted Special Effects Company of the Year in 2012 and 2013, Quantum provided effects for over 300 shows across the globe in 2012, covering every major continent on shows including Katy Perry at the IPL opening concert in Chennai, India, the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore, and the London 2012 Olympics.
