fmx/07, the 12th International Conference On Animation, Effects, Realtime and Content will take place in Haus der Wirtschaft, Stuttgart from May 01 to 04, 2007.
This year, fmx will hold workshops and screenings from the best of the best – covering the creation, production and distribution of the whole palette of digital imagery, from cinema and television to games, mobile entertainment and visual computing.
For those who are new to the industry or looking for new opportunities, fmx/recruiting will be expanded into a full series of panels, desks and sessions.
