The TechTalks Stuttgart event series presents technical topics from the fields of visual effects (VFX) and animation for scientists, creative professionals, students and the interested public. After the keynote speeches, people can spontaneously take to the microphone on their own behalf.
The two presentations of the TechTalks on March 28, 2023 at Das Gutbrod celebrate their YouTube premiere!
