CTN is thrilled to welcome back by popular demand the incredible character designer from Austria, Florian Satzinger. Florian will be demonstrating live and sharing his talent in our Creator Conversation sessions all weekend. Florian is also the official designer of the CTN Early Bird and “Where are you coming from?” Contest icons.
Florian Satzinger was a student of the well-regarded Disney, MGM and Hanna-Barbera animator and animation director Ken Southworth (“Alice In Wonderland”, “Woody Woodpecker”, “Tom & Jerry”, “The Flintstones”, “Peanuts”, “The Smurfs”) who influenced him greatly. Presently, he is developing StarDucks© and Toby Skybuckle© with France and Japan based Ankama Media Group. Besides his design and production work, he teaches character design, analog animation and animation history in collaboration with Maryam Laura Moazedi at the University of Applied Sciences, Salzburg.
