SAT September 9. 2017, 11 AM-05:45 PM
Central Linz

Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg Campus (AT), Ars Electronica (AT)

This is the fifth Expanded Animation symposium—and thus an anniversary of sorts. The discussion will focus on hybrid technologies and their impact on animation production. Several panels will discuss the developments from the various perspectives of animation filmmakers, media artists, game designers and scientists.

One of the Prix forums will host a discussion of current trends by winners in the Prix Ars Electronica’s Computer Animation/Film/VFX category.
