The Oscar-winning visual effects in Gravity were created by Framestore, the company co-founded by Dublin-born and educated William Sargent.

Framestore's Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, David Shirk and Neil Corbould were honoured with the Visual Effects Oscar at the Academy Awards on Sunday night.

Sargent spent some of his early years in Brazil but returned to his birthplace to attend boarding school.

He later studied Business and Law at Trinity College Dublin and co-founded Framestore in 1986.  

Watch the Oscars on RTÉ Two tonight, Monday March 3, from 9:00pm.
