Video on demand

This series of talks will be round up with a focus on how the creation of the IP, the use of VFX and motion design all worked together to create a coherent and believable world.An introduction of the creation and development of the IP will give insight into the different decisions and departments that were involved. Carly Coco (director and creator) will also touch on the specific challenges of transmedial storytelling.

Claus Lunt (VFX Supervisor) and Konrad Wilbrandt (VFX Producer) share insights and key takeaways from the VFX post-production of "Cybercity Loverstory".

Winner of the AUREA Young Talent Award, the pilot of Cybercity Lovestory was produced and developed at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, in co-production with 2112 STUDIOS.


Carly Coco, Director

Carly Coco Schrader was born in Berlin in 1994. She attended a German-English school there until she graduated from high school. While still at school, Carly worked on various film projects, both in front of and behind the camera. This passion led her to study "Scenic Arts" at the University of Hildesheim with a focus on media. The short film she made there enabled her to enroll at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, where Carly has been studying directing since October 2015. As a passionate gamer, Carly developed a video game there, which earned her an exchange to study as a game director at the DADIU program at the National Film School of Denmark. There she wrote and developed a mobile game with her team of twenty. Back in Germany, Carly directed the short film "Artgerecht" in summer 2020, which was broadcast on Arte and SWR.

As a final project of her studies at the Filmakademie, Carly is working on "Cybercity Lovestory" - a transmedia project that creates a synergy between VFX film and virtual reality game. In April 2021, Carly moved to Hamburg to develop series concepts and games with colleagues in Writers Rooms.
