FMX 2019 - Shaping Film Sets and Environments

The Concept Art track at FMX 2019 is proud to present a series of concept designers who use their illustration skills to convey complex ideas in a powerful way. As the animation and FX industry relies more on more on complex co-productions across multi-national and multi-studio platforms, Concept Art has never been more important to be the “glue” that holds all communication channels and the director’s vision together. The track will feature a series of talks plus an interactive panel discussion.
