AniTrailer + AniSpace

Students specializing in animation and interactive media begin their project-based study at the Animation Institute with a cross-institutional semester project. They produce trailers (AniTrailer) as well as interactive media installations, live interactions, or VR and AR applications (AniSpace) for the International Animation Festival and the FMX in Stuttgart. In joint workshops, students develop their initial ideas, and work in interdisciplinary teams. Projects are then supervised by teaching staff conceptually, technically, and during implementation. The support sessions take place on a weekly basis. The semester presentation takes place in March the following year in the form of presentations (AniTrailer) i.e. as a test setup, or a technical rehearsal (AniSpace).
