FMX11 Stuttgart

16th Conference on Animation, Effects, Games
and Interactive Media

It has been quite refreshing to attend a conference like this.
FMX brings a nice balance of presentations both from profession and education. It is also amazing to see so many young people, mainly students @ the conference. This clearly demonstrates the energy and potential impact on the development of the new professional in the fields of Animation, Interactive media and Gaming.

FMX places special focus on educators and organizes a fair of animation training schools and programs as well as industry technology leaders.

Special sessions on promoting recruitment for leading world animation studios take place every day. SIGGRAPH specials, Flashforward conference content, forums on technology, workflow and pipeline analysis of big titles like Rango, Rio, Tangled by Dreamworks, ILM and Pixar, Disney Studios, UBIsoft and others are running from 9.30am to 8pm.

In parallel to FMX11 there is a 18. Internationales Trickfilm Festival ( with its amazing selections from art/animations from round the globe.

It is overwhelming and I am enjoying it so much. The same is expected from the last two days of the conference too!

Underground Art: Chris Marker’s “PASSENGERS” Exhibit

Cocteau used to say that at night, statues escape from museums and go walking in the streets. During my peregrinations in the Paris Metro, I sometimes made such unusual encounters. Models of famous painters were still among us, and I was lucky enough to have them sitting in front of me. —Chris Marker
