The wind in your hair, the warmth of the sun on your skin, and the sea and mountains in sight – haven’t experienced this in ages? Neither have we. But whatever. We simply created our own paradise instead. Welcome to our small motion design island at the Film Academy! Our program coordinator Jürgen will accompany you and make sure that everything stays in harmony.

Here you’ll find all the possibilities a designer’s heart desires. Every year, a wide variety of projects are created in the areas of title sequences, music videos, commercials, live visuals, installations, branding, games, VR applications and experimental short films – the fields and topics of motion design are incredibly diverse. Paradisiacal opportunities for our students to experiment and gain priceless experience for audiovisual, spatial and interactive design!

all-inclusive PROGRAM

The study program focuses on practice and is enriched by workshops and talks from external speakers. The projects are always cooperative, which means that everyone can work freely with students from other programs. Whether it’s fiction and documentary directing, film music, sound design, tv journalism, cinematography, editing, production, advertising film, animation, or interactive media: thanks to the various competencies directly on-site in Ludwigsburg, a lasting network is created beyond the program.
