Binary Alchemy is a company that has the ambition to develop tools that make artists work easier.
The tools should take over work without taking over the complete control.
Reduce boring and time consuming work and open new doors for artists.
Binary Alchemy was founded 2003 by Holger Schönberger.
Holger Schönberger has collected numerous years of experience in computer animation and has filled diverse roles within the many aspects of digital post-production. He worked for various commercials and visualisations.
In 2003 he started the project study course for animation at the Institut of Animation, an autonomous department of the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. There he concentrated on visual effects from set supervision to playout and worked on multiple projects as shading/rendering TD.
Since then he is developing tool, applications and shaders (including the BA volumetrics used in hollywood features and commercials and now shipped with Softimage).
