First confirmations for FMX 2024

VFX FOR EPISODIC: Christopher Smallfield to give insights

on bending space & time in LOKI S2

Time is out of control in the second season of LOKI on Disney+: The two-faced god Loki from Marvel’s AVENGERS universe turns out to not be his original scheming self but a surprisingly heroic variant. Someone has to venture out into the vacuum of space to fix the time loom – but no protective suit can save them from time erosion.

At FMX, VFX Supervisor Christopher Smallfield (Trixter) will explain how they came up with the look of that process. Prepare to be amazed!

Stylized Animation

LIGHTING & RENDERING: Daniel Damm sharing secrets on stylized animation

With every major animation studio doing stylized animation, it’s safe to say stylization is here to stay. Owner and animator Daniel Damm (Damm it!) will talk about who brought it on, and how they did it. How a few people thought outside the box and changed the entire industry.

Having seen where it all started, he will take a look at how things are done today. What are the current tools able or unable to do? Stylized animation is the ultimate art vs technology. Will it become available in real time engines the same way traditional 3D has after decades of technical advancements? And who will be the one bringing it there?
