    Fri - 09:30 - room1
    Sebastian Freudenschuss, Bounty Studio Matthias Innauer, Bounty Studio

    Since we started in 2018 playtime is an actual folder on our server and an essential part of our work philosophy.

    Playtime is when the experiments happen. Playtime is when there is no pressure of a deadline or output in general.

    Playtime is when you can do anything you want.

    Playtime is when the magic happens.

    And if that magic leads to a client project so let the magic happen!

  • Talk - "Rotzbub – Willkommen in Siegheilkirchen" From Script to Animation – and slightly beyond.

    Fri - 10:45 - room1
    Michael Merkatz

    Austrias first full feature animation movie tells the story of Ultra-Catholic Siegheilkirchen in 1960s. In the tavern a snotty boy sits drawing nude pictures of the generously endowed butcher’s assistant. These pictures cause general agitation. The snotty boy is called Manfred Deix and is evidently talented. A salty cartoon feature film inspired by Manfred Deix about the teenage years of the Austrian Republic, with star-quality voices and wickedly accurate figures.

    Fri - 12:00 - room1
    Roman Saravia, FriendlyFire Georg Sochurek, Friendly Fire

    How FriendlyFire started research & development on integrating interactive 3D tools, which completely changed our ways of thinking and producing CG content.

    We’ll talk about our experiences evolving our pipeline over the last 3 years by showcasing examples from various fields like Virtual Production, Pixelstreaming Web-Configurators and how the differences between offline-render productions and interactive productions gradually started to disappear.

  • Talk - Rubikon - Making a Space movie…in Austria

    Fri - 14:00 - room1
    Franz Brandstätter
    Rubikon was the first science fiction feature film entirely produced in Austria. VFX Supervisor Franz Brandstaetter assembled a team of great artists at the VFX House ArxAnima to make this adventure come true.
