Meet Bruno!


Hey everyone!

Meet Bruno, the star of our official FMX 2018 trailer Behind the Beard. Over the next few months, you will be able to follow Bruno’s life through seven episodes.

The transmedia project Behind the Beard was created by students at Animationsinstitut. For the first time in FMX history, you can not only look forward to a trailer, but also experience Bruno’s world through a tablet game!

Bruno might look happy for now – but his idyllic world will be shaken to the grounds. What might happen? You will find out soon! We will release the first episode on December 13, so keep an eye out for that.

FMX is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the City of Stuttgart and the MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg, taking place in cooperation with VES Visual Effects Society, ACM SIGGRAPH and the World Building Institute, supported by the Animation Media Cluster Region Stuttgart (AMCRS), Backstage, Foundry, Isotropix, Mackevision and ScanlineVFX. FMX is an event by the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, organized by Animationsinstitut, hosting the Animation Production Day (APD), a joint venture with the Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart (ITFS).
