FMX 2013 talk

(Un-)lucky number 13 ?

Back from Stuttgart where FMX 2013 conference took place. Lot’s of inspiring talks about the state of the industry and state of the art techniques for Virtual Production. The conference organization was basically flawless, such a nice environment to meet some of the kings and queens of vfx and animation. Also had the chance to meet up with old friends from filmschool and take in some of that nice Stuttgart sun. On a downer note: It was a bit saddening to see several scheduled talks by artists from LucasArts (StarWars1313) or vfx houses that were closed or had to shut down. :(

I contributed to FMX with a talk on Friday, representing CRYTEK with some of my group’s projects done in 2012 and the beginning of 2013.
The talk’s title was “Cinematics in CryENGINE”. It included some insights into how we did the first story cinematic for Crysis 3, a bit about Crysis 3 trailer production, the WARFACE “pick a side” trailer. To  cap off I gave a showing of the STAR CITIZEN reveal trailer. Most of these projects were done in CINEBOX, a special breed of CryENGINE for Previs, Virtual Production and Cinematics.
The feedback was lovely. Thanks everyone who was in attendance!
