Esri sponsors „Best Visual Effects“ category

We’re thrilled to announce Esri will once again be joining us for animago 2017. The category “Best Visual Effects” will be supported by them just like last year.

“The Animago Award & Conference is one of Europe’s leading events for the entire spectrum of digital media production and visualization since 1997. Animago represents recognition of exceptional creativity and technical excellence,” says Dominik Tarolli, Director, Global Business Development, 3D Geodesign Markets at Esri. “Cities as digital film sets are beautiful and even become essential “characters” of movie blockbusters like Zoomania, Superman – Man of Steel, Big Hero 6, Independence Day: Resurgence etc.
