Tobias Kummer
3D, compositing & programming
After discovering a random 3D program on a friend’s CD, Tobi rendered his first 3D animation of his name orbited by a point light in the late 90s. He has made some progress since then.
During his film, theater and media studies in Vienna, he continued doing 3D for fun and - after completing his stay there - started working at a small VFX shop, adding compositing to his skillset. Looking for creative outlets besides work he learned Unreal Engine to develop small games - which came in handy when clients started asking for VR applications.
Again left without a hobby that’s not part of his work, Tobi started to get back into music - having learned to play keyboard when he was a little rascal. He is working on his first album, expected to be released next year (this statement will be true for probably the rest of his life).

André Christopher Gerhardt
Compositing & 2D animation
Do you remember the time shortly after the millennium? Exactly during a phase in which “Train in Vain” was running in a continuous loop, a guitar and a pair of drumsticks happened to fall into André’s hands. Quickly realizing the golden age of punk music was over, he was drawn to more sophisticated realms and music finally became his whimsical companion. The band career failed to materialize - surprise! Instead, in addition to musicology, the love of films and their editing stood out. Blue-eyed, he was drawn to various internships, where he first concentrated on illustration work, and later on compositing.
He also turned his communicativeness into a profession and started working as a commercial voiceover artist on the side, providing the local area with cinema ads. Today, digital effects are his daily bread, as well as creating motion graphics and conceptualizing entire projects. By the way, André is still interested in tennis, without ever having set foot on a tennis court.

Verena Kraus
3D, visualization & animation
To the stars! That was the original goal - which didn’t materialize, and so the astronaut career ended before it began.
In the early 2000s, Verena completed an apprenticeship to be a film and media designer. During those 2 years, she also assisted at a photography studio to sharpen her photography skills, and taught herself 3ds max and Maya. To expand on that as well, a one year long internship in the 3D and compositing realm followed - and it’s been her passion ever since.
Since the make-it-beautiful-button still hasn’t arrived, she shoves pixels from left to right, up to down and vice-versa to make beautiful images.
