This year's program features a number of highly anticipated yet unreleased films: in addition to the next Avatar movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the program is enriched by an exclusive presentation on the animation pleasure How to Train Your Dragon 2. FMX is proud to showcase a first glimpse into the sequel more than two months before it hits the cinemas on June 13. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is in good company with further animation favorites such as Frozen, The LEGO Movie, Rio 2.
During this behind-the-scenes panel for the feature animated film, How To Train Your Dragon 2 (June 2014), Co-Head of Effects at DreamWorks Animation, Scott Peterson, shares footage and discusses visual effects from the long-awaited sequel. A variety of tools and processes led to managing a greater scope of complexity in the world of dragons and Vikings.
Four years after the first film, a more mature Hiccup returns to the screen with a new gadget that harnesses dragon fire. He encounters unfamiliar dragons that use fire in unexpected ways. One dragon even breathes ice. Scott Peterson will discuss tools and techniques used to realize these effects and others.
