Founded two decades ago by Simone Kraus and Michael Coldewey, Trixter is one of Germany`s leading VFX studios, creating stunning high end VFX work and character animation for film and television.

The studio is responsible for developing a series of iconic Marvel characters like Iron Man, Black Panther, Rocket and Baby Groot together with a breathtaking variety of animals, from an ant to an elephant and even magical dragons. The international team of artists teaches them how to run, swim, fly or whatever the project requires, creating believable characters that live on the screen, interacting seamlessly with their human co-stars. Trixter also provides them with environments: whether it be a set extension or a completely virtual world, from a classic matte painting to a fully CG forest to a bustling city and everything in between, employing various complex effects from water to fire or smoke.

At the leading edge of the industry, employing computer scientists, film aficionados and incredibly talented artists, Trixter is always pushing the boundaries and is currently developing content and technical solutions for VR and 360°.
