Das erste internationale

Expertensymposium im 3D Bereich.

3D-Symposium 2012 3D-Festival 2011

New Speaker for sunday!

Dr. Vesna Petresin Robert will be additional speaker on Sunday, 24th July. She will talk about "Immersion as Embodied Illusion".


The Film well_bleche is going to be shown at 3D-Symposium BEYOND!

well_bleche is a bourgeois tragedy about young European adults in the early 21st century. The relationship between Johannes and Katharina has gotten to a decisive point: He seeks freedom whereas she wants to move in with him. She writes her thesis while he does not plan ahead of tomorrow. At this point Johannes meets Eline. She is young and enjoys life – with her even cleaning becomes fun. But is this yet another of Johannes’ dreams or will Eline follow him - and what about Katharina?

BEYOND Award Education

Max Hemmo´s international researchproject "s3DNOW!" is a role model for the interdisciplinary cooperative work of business, research and teaching.
In this ambitious project, relevant answers to the current challenges in both technical and asthetic developments of stereoscopic film productions are being transmitted.
Especially the combination of english publications along with a 3D Blue-ray providing practical and theoretical final papers developed in Film and Television University"Konrad Wolf" should be emphasised.
We are happy to reward project manager Max Hemmo and Andreas Westphal, who is 3D Producer and Author of Bookproject "s3DNOW!" for their achievement and Engagement with the BEYOND Education Award.

DJ sets and concerts underlied by spatial light- and videoinstallations are being planned.
A multiple channel- spaceinstallation by Thorsten Schwanninger is going to introduce the evening, which is being accompanied by music collective “The Himmlisch Kind”.
After that, the collective “Günther Lause” is going to tune up for our parisian guests by showcasing their compositions of minimal, technoid structures – where after the Band “Caandides” are presenting their own creation of electroacustic postrock and folktronica.
Last but not least, “Sous-Terrain Schamanen“ and Hendrik Vogel will spin some deep house and techno records on the tables.
The light and videoinstallation of Thorsten Schwanninger is going to turn HFG´s architecture into a huge illuminating quader that moves in the rhythm of the beat.
We are looking forward to an evening with special guests from Paris and Karlsruhe and a spectacular lightshow that is not that easy to forget!
