Highlights of FMX 1994 - 2020

What are the Highlights of FMX 1994-2020?

Building on our history of highlighting outstanding people and projects, FMX is establishing a new series of live online shows. Every two weeks, this will provide you with the unique chance to gain insights into the careers of these professionals. In the live shows, they will talk about their backgrounds, give glimpses into current projects, reflect on the future of animation and VFX, and exchange opinions with other experts from their fields. But more than that: You will get the chance to ask them your questions - just join the live show or send them in beforehand to highlights@fmx.de (for details see bottom of this page).

Be there when Sven elaborates on how to bring mystical creatures to life and what it was like to work on one of HBO´s biggest successes GAME OF THRONES.
