Fmx – the annual international conference on animation, effects, games and digital media is close! So I am going to be in Stuttgart from Monday 5th to Friday 9th for a couple of interesting and fun days!

As I already mentioned a couple of posts before, the music video “Masterplan” was nominated at the ITFS, which is kind of at the same time as fmx. The awards will be given out Tuesday evening – let’s hope we win something!
Also I am going to present “Masterplan” and “MTSAT” at fmx for a showcase and introduction of our new university “Babelsberg Film School” (the successor of The German Film School).

If you happen to be at fmx too – see you there!

Siggraph 2008

I just applied for the Student Volunteer Program for Siggraph 2008 in Los Angeles! It was such a great experience last year that I definitely don’t want to miss it this year.

Well, I guess I have been a little sloppy with updating my website… so here’s some news:

Siggraph really was a blast! I can only recommend participating the Student Volunteer Program if possible. I’ve learned and seen a lot that the “ordinary” Siggraph visitor wouldn’t. And you get in contact with people from the industry – the big companies like Weta Digital, Pixar, Dreamworks, Sony Imageworks, Electronic Arts and more. There are special information sessions for the Student Volunteers, which are quite informal and you can approach them personally. A great chance to drop off some demo reels and CVs!
If I can make it next year I will go again!

Before Siggraph I had some time to visit Alexander Nehls, a friend of mine who is currently working at Pixar as a Technical Director. So I got to see the holy halls of Pixar! ;-)
Quite impressive of course!

Siggraph 2007

Yay! Only a little over two weeks left until Siggraph! This year I applied for a Student Volunteer Position at Siggraph and got selected! So I am very happy to be able to contribute to that fantastic conference.

Next week I will first go to San Francisco to visit a friend and stay a couple of days there. Then I will maybe go to Los Angeles and after that to San Diego on 02. August to be able to start my shifts for the conference on the 3rd.

See you there! :-)

Alright – fmx is over! We actually had quite a lot of visitors at our workshop about the making of MTSAT. It seems to have been well received, thanks again to everyone for their interest!

See you around next time!

On Thursday (03/05/2007 – 18:00 – List-Saal: Galerie A) Bastian Wartenberg and I will be presenting MTSAT and walk through the process of it’s making as part of a workshop at fmx/07.

So if you happen to be at fmx anyway – maybe you are interested to learn a bit more about our latest shortfilm?
