Over the past years, film and game industry grew like hardly any other business branch. And very rarely a production can be realized without modern techinques of visualisation, animation and special effects.
From elaborate animation films to photorealistic game animations, the range of possibilites expand daily. Besides the creation of virtual storyboards we produce animation films in virtual worlds (so called machinima) and gaming worlds.
A further focus is on the design and animation of virtual characters.

May 2008: Edd Kewin. Eine kleine, kleine Narbe.
An avatar goes to see a doctor. Is this tomorrows healt communication? A film dealing with this question – „Edd Kewin. Eine kleine, kleine Narbe“ – premieres at the Hauptstadtkongress Medizin und Gesundheit Berlin, within the session “ConceptHospital 8.6: Die Zukunft der Gesundheit“ (June 4th 2008, 2.00 pm, ICC, ICC-Lounge.
Within the 10-minutes-movie, set at a time exactly 20 years from now on, a successful Berlin playwright sends his avatar out to the virtual reproduction of Berlin hospitals to look for a suitable hospital for an upcoming operation. (Avatars are the virtual representatives of real human beings that move through three-dimensional internet worlds such as Second Life®.) Because of the recommendation of a femal avatar friend, the avatar of the playwright visits a Berlin hospital, consults the (avatar) chief physician in charge, has pains and scarves simulated and finally makes an appointment for the operation of his “master”. The avatar chief physician is called and talks just like Prof. Dr. med. Jan Langrehr, chief physician of the departement for visceral surgery at the Waldkrankenhaus Spandau. Professor Langrehr supervised the film project and will be present at the session.
The presentation – that is not to be taken too serious – is set in reality as well as in Second Life®. It was produced by the PR agency WOK and realized by the agency YOUin3D.com, specialized in 3-D contents within the internet. The film was directed by Christian Asbach. The idea goes back to the three founders of „ConceptHealth”: the physicians D Dr. Markus Müschenich, Dr. Dirk Richter and Dr. Pascal Scher. „ConceptHealth“ is a brainpool reflecting on the future of our health system.
