Great Animators: Phil Tippett and Chris Landreth at eDIT 8.

In addition to the Festival Honors Award to Phil Tippett, eDIT announces another animation master at this year’s Festival: Academy Award winner Chris Landreth will interview Festival Honoree Phil Tippett on Monday, October 10th from 16.30 – 18.00 o'clock. Animators and other filmmakers should not miss, when these two will discuss Tippetts oeuvre and beyond: the history and future of animation itself.

Furthermore, Chris will present the making of his Academy Award-winning animation short Ryan in the panel Great Animation and Storytelling, Monday, October 10th, hosted by AWN publisher Dan Sarto.

Monday is animation day at eDIT 8. and in addition to the above, all day long there are panels and presentations on animation.

Great Animation and Storytelling, a panel hosted by Dan Sarto, will feature extraordinary actual animation shorts of different techniques. Along with Chris, Juan Pablo Etcheverry (Minotauromaquia) and Oury Atlan (Over Time) will discuss their work.

The panel Digital Actors is dedicated to animated characters and their current use in live action films: Michael Coldewey (Ghost of Canterville), and Tippet Studio's Frank Petzold (Carl and Ray) will present their work, discuss their experiences and their expectations for the future of 3D actors.

Alias will present Maya and Motion Builder as tools for creative professionals.

ILM's presentation of Star Wars Episode III is not by chance on animation day, as again George Lucas has pushed the limits of the feasible further.

Digital Beauties: One particularly intensively cultivated branch of computer animation is called Babes with Blades. A comparison of computer-animated beauties: Julius Wiedemann displays what he found all over the planet.

Animation day will close with a very special screening: Dan Sarto, editor of AWN, has assembled what he regards as outstanding Animated Shorts. He will present this collection.

On Sunday, 9th of October, Henry LaBounta (EA Games) will present Computergames - The next generation. New consoles are opening up amazing possibilities for game animation. Real-time and interactivity are the keywords here – a chance but also a challenge for developer teams.

Thomas Schneider of Clay Art along with creative director Michel Goldschmidt present arte’s animated TV-trailers Joyeuse Fête, arte! which created fantasy worlds that captured the magic of Christmas in an incomparable way. On Tuesday, October 11th.

Also on Tuesday: Persepolis - a virtual reconstruction. With an enormous care for detail, the TV-production in 3D reconstructs the historical city, that was destroyed in the times of Alexander the great (330 bc). With Wolfgang Gambke
