If you're a steam engine lover, there is only one place to be on 26th April: König-Karl-Halle at FMX2018 conference in Stuttgart for a look behind the scenes of Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer. Our FX and CG supervisor Andreas Giesen will be your guide on this adventure.

FMX 2018 - Jim Knopf & Lukas der Lokomotivführer

Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver (Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivfuehrer) is a live-action movie based on the classic German children's book of the same name by Michael Ende. The story of Jim Button, a little orphan who strands on a deserted island and later leaves for a big adventure with Luke, the engine driver, has been enchanting generations of children and grown-ups alike since the book release in the 60s. Director Dennis Gansel rose to the challenge and adapted the beloved book into a VFX-intense feature film.

Interested to know how we use Houdini and created the various environment on Babylon Berlin? Be sure to attend to our talk:

FMX 2018 - Babylon Berlin - Complex Crowd Sims And Environments

RISE will present the tech behind over 800 shots for the most expensive non-English series to date: Babylon Berlin.

Focusing on the Houdini work we will take an in-depth look at the crowd system created for this show, including cloth simulations and approaches to streamline retargeting and animation workflows.

The second focus will be on the extensive environment pipeline at RISE and how Houdini's procedural workflows were used to bring Berlin in the 20s to life.

Book your dates to know more about our work on Babylon Berlin during the FMX! See you there!

FMX 2018 - Babylon Berlin

Last year we delivered all VFX shots (over 800 total) for the most expensive non-English series to date: Babylon Berlin by mastermind directors Tom Tykwer, Achim von Borries und Henk Handloegten. Set in Berlin in the 20s our work led by VFX supervisor Robert Pinnow involved historically accurate set extensions with hundreds of digital buildings, underwater environments, CG landscapes and trains, CG aerial shots and the most detailed crowd simulations including CG cloth that we had ever attempted. Thanks to all 120 artists in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart and Cologne we delivered this monster on time. Now on Sky, in some territories on HBO and on Netflix in the US.
