Introducing Animationsinstitut

As part of Filmakademie's Open Day in November 2020, we were able to produce several informational videos to give you a first impression of studying at Animationsinstitut: after an introduction by Animationsinstitut's Director Andreas Hykade (German only), Constanze Bühner will tell you everything about the requirements for studying at Animationsinstitut and the application procedure. In the same video, we will also show you our studios, editing rooms, project rooms and classrooms with a small tour through our building. Furthermore, you can look forward to three project presentations by our students from the fields of Animation, Visual Effects and Interactive Media.


Please make sure to tune in and inform yourself about Animationsinstitut prior to our Q&A Session so we can focus on individual questions.
