Indiepixel 2, Feb 1st 2013 canceled :(

Hey everyone!

My apologies, instead of announcing the next round of speakers and opening up the registration for the second Indiepixel Summit i have to deliver the sad news that we had to cancel / delay the event (until further notice). Without going into detail: we simply faced too many problems to solve them all in time for february 1st. We are working hard on resolving all issues and will be back with a new announcement, hopefully real soon.

Indiepixel Forum

Wow! After Fefe blogged about the 1st Indiepixel Summit, we're being bombed with mails and messages. Fortunately we found a platform where all interested indies can get in touch with us: we're on Facebook
Erm, no we're not. But our friends over at Gamebrausch (to whom we are absolutely NOT related to whatsoever, of course;) are so kind to let us use their forum as long as we have nothing of our own. And what can I say? Why would we set up our own forum if we can use their existing one? But please don't tell them I said that. However: Head over to the Gamebrausch forum and join in on the discussion or ask your questions.

Indiepixel talks

Fellow creatives, i am seriously excited to present you the final lineup of talks for the first Indiepixel Summit! A huge "Thank you!" to Vito, Tobi and Chaos for taking the time to doing this! Each one of them is given a 20 minute timeslot on the beam between 7pm and 10pm .. So if you can't make it during the day you might still consider coming in just for the evening (but even in that case: Don't forget to register! (Registration will open soon)) - And if everything fails there is still the last option: We will record all the talks and make them available online afterwards, so you can enjoy them at home ...or during a picnic in the park, a bike-ride through the mountains or whatever suits you best.

Anyway, here we go:

Vito La Manna / MovieBrats Films & Animation Berlin

"Stick To It: Ideen sind Herrlich, die Umsetzung die Hoelle"

Vito was a carpenter, a mover and a barber, before he went on to become a self-taught Digital Artist at Virgin Lands Animated Pictures where he soon also became an associate partner and contributed to the rise of the company to one of the leading animation houses in the entertainment software industry. He worked for clients like Sony CE America, Atari, Vivendi Universal and JoWood Productions before he relocated to Japan to learn to play the Shakuhachi, the traditional Japanese bamboo flute while he continued working as a freelance digital artist. In late 2009 he came back to Germany an cofounded MovieBrats.
