Filmakademie BW Diploma Project (Lighting & Assets)

Recommended Posts


I'm a student in fourth year in Animation/VFX at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, currently starting production on our diploma project including some really awesome VFX shots.

The film is a 2 minute social spot promoting renewable energies for private households, the title is "Mother Nature's Power". The story will be told with footage shot in Iceland and in a studio and then some disasters at the film's climax are VFX / Full CG parts.

Here are our three key concepts for what we'll create photo-realistically later on:

To get to the point: We already have a big talented roster of film and animation students assigned and scheduled, but we are still looking for help in the department of lighting (Houdini/Redshift/Arnold) and assets (Anything). If you're a passionate artist looking for opportunities to collaborate then we can provide a platform for potentially awesome portfolio work. We'll be working on this for a year from now and we are very flexible with scheduling. Remote work is no issue at all as well. If you are interested, I can send you a project folder with details about our concept and approach as well as our animatic that is almost final and we can talk further. :)

If you wanna know more about the heads of this project, here is the vita from me and the 2nd VFX-Supervisor on this project Lucas Bruchhage:

The main director that I share co-direction with is Nicolas Bori, student in Advertising Direction with a lot of production experience also. Check out his website here: https://www.nicolasbori.com/

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Cheers from Stuttgart,
