FMX '10

Last year me and Sebastiaan van Waardenberg (our gamedesigner) went to FMX '09 in Stuttgart. An Internationl Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Digital Media with speakers from all around the world.
It was a great trip (I'll spare you the details, but trust me, I can still remember it) and Stuttgart is a great place as well. We went to see the "Art Direction and Lighting of Bolt" (from the Walt Disney Animation Studios), Storytelling and the evolution of a shot by Chris Williams (also from Disney) and the great Syd Mead who, by the way, is full of himself beyond belief.

Anyways this year (May 04- May 07) and I quote straight from their newsletter:
++ More top notch speakers confirmed +++
FMX is glad to welcome Daniel Jeanette, Animation Director and Visual Effects Supervisor on “Where the Wild Things Are” and Simon Otto, Head of Character Animation for DreamWorks’ “How to Train Your Dragon”.
Other newly confirmed speakers are the Stereoscopic Supervisors Jayme Wilkinson (“Ice Age 3”) and Anthony Shafer (“Christmas Carol”). So If you want to go don't hesitate. It's not that far and...
they have great schnitzels!
