Every spring Stuttgart opens up the doors to the great world of animated film!
ITFS ranks among the world’s most important events for animated film and attracts up to 100,000 visitors and industry professionals from all over the world every year with the best of high-quality animations. The festival presents all aspects of animation filmmaking with intersections to visual effects, architecture, art, design, music and games. The DAZ will once again be part of the festival with an exciting event for school classes.

It’s 1933, an animation director and a musical director are sitting in a room, each with the tools of his trade – bar sheets, piano, stopwatch, storyboard and action cue sheet having a meeting to plot out the sound and music for their next animated film.
Now let’s come 90 years into the present, and here we see the animation director and the musical director, each in their own studio, sitting by the tools of their trade – computer screens opened to Zoom, the musical director’s digital piano keyboard hooked up to his DAW (music recording software) and the director at his video player screen, both meeting to plan out the music and sound for their new film.
In his talk, composer Nik Phelps gives a brief description of how the music was prepared in the early days of sound films and he then goes on to give a complete demonstration of how we put music and sound to film today.

With: Nik Phelps, Composer
In cooperation with: 30th Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS)
