"Amsterdam is the perfect place to launch FITC in Europe," says Shawn Pucknell, Founder of FITC and Executive Producer of FITC Amsterdam.

Apart from the unique location, FITC Amsterdam will also bring together, for the first time, the creators of Papervision 3D, an open source 3D engine that has turned the Flash world on its head. Team members John \m/ Grden (USA), Ralph Hauwert (The Netherlands), Tim Knip (The Netherlands), and Carlos Ulloa (UK) will present an invaluable workshop focused on this new high-performance application.
