BIO: Moritz Schwind - entagma- germany
"Still thinks “Space: 1999” is the coolest thing that ever happened on german TV.
Be it pixels, hardware, code or cameras – if it’s interesting, Moritz is gonna take it apart. And sometimes even reassemble it. In his spare time he likes to dabble with code and create generative artwork. He claims his early exposure to QBasic is no help at all when working in Houdini, Cinema 4D, Processing or Arduino. But it might have been what started his fascination for the boundaries of code and art. When not wreaking havoc to any intriguing devices around him, he works as an Art Director at Aixsponza."
BIO: Manuel Casasola Merkle- entagma- germany
"Changes his software packages more often than his shirts. Manuel Casasola Merkle likes to dive deep into the ins & outs of contemporary CG research, burrying his desk under piles of Siggraph papers. An avid Cinema 4D user, Manuel keeps an open mind about tools and uses whatever it takes to get a job done, thus racking up quite diverse software skills such as VEX, Pyhton, Houdini, World Machine, Photo Scan, 3D Coat, Krita, Fusion or ZBrush. When he’s not pondering over the state of 3D software in general, he is partner and creative director of Munich based studio Aixsponza."
Talk: Design / VFX / Generative Art - The Nouvelle Cuisine á la Houdini
"Design and VFX are converging. While Motion Design is finding it's way into big budget blockbusters, designers increasingly embrace the versatility and power of tools traditionally found in VFX.
Entagma's Manuel & Moritz share their insights on how to successfully combine physics, biology, VFX and design into a new approach to Motion Design using Houdini."
