Time Travel in FMX2024

Time travel has always been a major topic at FMX – and it certainly will be this year. The timeline mayhem in LOKI 2 is getting company: FMX attendees will gain insight into the making of a special episode of DOCTOR WHO, produced for the 60th anniversary of the time-travelling alien.

Curating the THEN & NOW track, VFX journalist Ian Failes (befores & afters) likes to travel between past and present adopting a historical perspective. This time, he’ll focus on “old-school” effects and how useful they can be in contemporary productions like the Prime Video series I’M A VIRGO.

Big cinema will also be present at FMX, of course: We’ll have a two-hour-slot on VFX in the feature Film THE MARVELS at the 28th edition of the conference on animation, effects, interactive and immersive media.
