AN unsung hero whose work in the tech industry has helped bring special effects to some of Hollywood’s biggest cinema hits has collected an Academy Award from Star Trek star Sir Patrick Stewart on Saturday.

Abigail Brady, who lives in Camden High Street, Camden Town, was among team which created Nuke, a software system which used by film-makers to create thrilling big screen sequences. She was in Beverly Hills for the Sci-Tech awards, the technical Oscars ceremony which takes place each year ahead of the world-famous movie awards. She thanked a list of friends after receiving the award.

In an interview with the New Journal last week, she said: “I’d never imagined it would happen. We just didn’t expect it. We hadn’t put ourselves in for it or anything, they just decided to award us.”
