On the 18th and 19th of October, the 13th SAE Alumni Convention, sponsored by Stadt Köln, took place in the wonderful town at the Rhein. The convention started with an opening panel with Chris Müller, Managing Director, SAE GSA, who discussed with SAE graduates about the challenges of being self-employed and establishing one’s own successful business. Among the participants were SAE Berlin graduate and Grammy-winner Richard Furch from L.A., SAE alumni Christian Raters and Julian Meybohm from Studio Lyrebird as well as Robin Hasenbach, founder of N-Gon Entertainment. Afterwards an impressive open space seminar program started with more than 45 speakers from all around the world – covering a wide range of topics from audio, music business to film, games, vfx, web and cross media – and covering different levels: for beginners as well as professionals.
