Filmakademie BW Diploma Project (Lighting & Assets)


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:

1: Oil Rig being crashed by an iceberg
2: Coal power plant falling into a sinkhole
3: Volcano erupting and the lava turning into solar panels

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, you can easily find us on LinkedIn for our vita. It’s me Martin Egger (Aixsponza, Mackevision, MPC) and the 2nd VFX-Supervisor on this project is Lucas Bruchhage (Framestore, MPC).

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: www DOT nicolasbori DOT com/

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Cheers from Stuttgart,
Martin Egger
