About FaberCourtial

Film, VR, VFX, animation & postproduction for high class TV productions, documentaries, exhibitions and image films.

With top-level animations, Faber Courtial have inspired viewers since 1998, both in museums and high-profile television documentaries. The core competence of our company lies in the photorealistic representation of past scenarios and dimensions that are not visible, such as earth's interior or Nero's Rome 2,000 years ago. We have created countless detailed and accurate settings - such as earth's history, battles, the interior of the human body - and historical reconstructions of cities such as Berlin, Babylon, Rome, Paris, London and Jerusalem for well-known TV productions.
The basis of these top-level animations is our extensive set archive which includes not only highly detailed assets but also reconstructions of almost all periods and cultures.

As one of Germany's leading VFX Studios, we always use the latest technology for our productions. Therefore, a logical consequence of our endeavour to continuously break new ground was entering the world of Virtual Reality. With the award winning documentary "Volcanos VR" for German broadcaster ZDF's series Terra X, we established ourselves as a VR pioneer on the German market and as premium provider in the production of virtual reality content. Thrilling VR productions - such as the documentary "Gladiators in the Colosseum" (2016), which was selected at numerous film festivals and which received the EMEA Lumiere Award Europe 2017 by the Advanced Imaging Society - underline our expertise in this area. In 2017 the Grimme Online Award followed for a VR time travel around the Cologne Cathedral, commissioned by German broadcaster WDR for a 360° project on this outstanding building.
