Munich, you better be prepared.
Next Thursday, 1st of March at 19.00, we'll celebrate our one year anniversary down South.
We thought it might be the best idea to celebrate with all the freelance artists in town since you help us creating the fireworks.

"But you are a little late to celebrate one year, aren't you?"
Yes, we hear ya, but we thought finishing our shows on time would be the better move and actually gives us even more reasons to celebrate.
Drinks on us!
You're welcomp.

Don't be shy, just stop by.

Please note: RSVP is a real thing.

Being supporters of Houdini from "back in the day" we would like to congratulate our friends and long time collaborators at SideFX Software for winning the "tech" #Oscar (or "Scientific & Engineering Academy Award") last weekend. If anyone ever deserved this - it's got to be you. You are the foundation of our daily work and you understand what our Artists need like nobody else does. THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS!

It appears there is a big VFX conference in London this week. We thought we’d show up and pleasure London with our presence. A few family members will be at The VFX Festival 2018 at #RichMix from Tuesday on.

Since sharing is caring, our very own Compositing Supervisor Benjamin Burr from the Stuttgart team will present our amazing work on #TheDarkTower on Wednesday morning at 10.00.
You better show up for that one and check out the "real Big Ben" in town.

Besides this mind-blowing presentation, we thought it might be a good idea to share some of our current openings within the London VFX scene. Therefore, Mirela and Marian will walk you through the menu.
They are nice people, so you’d better talk to them and maybe we’ll see ya around very soon :-)

If you’re not in London, or maybe just busy delivering shots, you can always stop by at to have a look at our current openings.

Be wise, choose RISE.
