Direttore Creativo, Faber Courtial
Maria Courtial is co-founder, producer and managing director of one of Germany’s leading VR and VFX studios, Faber Courtial.
After her graduation in Industrial Design, she founded Faber Courtial in 1998 together with husband Joerg where she particularly took care of the conception of the film projects (besides the overall business management) and where she acted as consultant to the clients in all creative matters.
Since 2014, after the company entered the world of VR, Maria has been producing all of Faber Courtial´s award-winning VR films. In this function she coordinates and influences the whole development process, dealing with the artistic, technical and administrative challenges during the entire production process.
In doing so, the creation of VR films became more and more a real matter of heart to her. Right from the beginning of each project she is working closely together with husband and director Joerg, “shaping” new groundbreaking VR experiences. Both are fascinated of VR’s infinite possibilities and their VR films are quite often the result of passionate debates. This “obsession” and aspiration to produce “the best that’s possible” has been part of their business philosophy ever since: when starting “Faber Courtial” over 20 years ago, the objective of the two founders was to bring more emotion and fascination to the hitherto down-to-earth world of 3D animation. Soon they were assigned with the production of high-profile VFX projects for TV documentaries and exhibitions. And this paved the way to their actual passion: the production of outstanding VR worlds. Hence, since 2014, Maria, Jörg and their talented team have devoted themselves to this challenge by creating top-level VR film content – striving to set the highest possible standards in VR storytelling, VR production and the implementation of the latest, innovative VR techniques.
