TH Nürnberg Georg-Simon-Ohm
The approach of the Film & Animation Department in Nuremberg, led by Professor Jürgen Schopper, is decidedly workplace oriented. A special emphasis is placed on filmmaking and storytelling that is appreciative of its past as well as its future in the realm of digital imagery. Students participate in various projects and create narrative short films, music videos, commercials, motion graphics, and complete purely experimental and mock assignments. Each of these sub-genres has specific requirements and in turn offers unique design possibilities, which we will introduce over the course of study with the help of examples. Students are expected to apply these principles at all stages of the creative process’ during concept development and the creation of storyboards and animatics, during physical production and postproduction, including editing, color grading, music and sound mixing. Preparing presentations and developing sales strategies, as well as taking on all production management responsibilities of an entire project from start to finish are also part of the scope of this program. The students and projects coming out of our program have garnered a great deal of international attention. Numerous awards and invitations to film festivals are proof of that.
