Tune in: A Phantasmagorical Journey with Phil Tippett

Live on Monday, July 20, 20:00 CET

Dear FMX Community,

the next Highlights of FMX Live Show will feature the very special friendship of two stop motion enthusiasts, who once met at FMX and have not lost sight of each other ever since: Arne Hain, animation student at Animationsinstitut, will lead us through a conversation with his mentor and friend, the legendary Phil Tippett.

Highlights of FMX with Phil Tippett

Phil Tippett can be called an industry veteran. Inspired by Ray Harryhausen, he pioneered the use of stop motion in Visual Effects. From animation on the first STAR WARS in the 70s to ROBOCOP, JURASSIC PARK and STARSHIP TROOPERS, Phil can now look back on a successful career of over 40 years. His work earned him, among others, two Academy Awards, a BAFTA award, two Emmys, and the prestigious Windsor McCay and Georges Méliès awards from the Visual Effects Society.

With his Tippett Studio, Phil is working on projects like HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HOLLOWS, TED, AFTER EARTH and THE CROSSING, realizing award-winning CG animation. Never losing his passion for stop motion, he also made room for the experimental project MAD GOD, on which he worked for over three decades.
