Case Study: From Cartoon to Digital Game
How can we adapt an animated film project for the game industry? Roman Vizvary presents the work principles of the company Butterfly Effect, which is involved in the field of developing games and applications on assigned topics. The writers of the successful TV series and TV special Mimi and Lisa compare the approaches used for animated works and for games. Together with the team from Butterfly Effect, they will describe the specific workflow and creative processes which they work through. The presenters will also outline their business model, their plans, and also what their new enterprises have taught them.
Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
Speakers: Katarina Kerekesova (Fool Moon, Slovakia), Katarina Molakova (Fool Moon, Slovakia), Roman Vizvary (Butterfly Effect, Slovakia), team that developed the game

ABOUT MIMI AND LISA
The stories of Mimi and Lisa bring children the marvellous tale of an extraordinary friendship between Mimi, who is blind, and her cheerful friend Lisa. Together, without any prejudice, they discover a world filled with adventure and full of wacky fantasies, but also cooperation and empathy.
The Fool Moon company has been working on this project since 2013. They have produced a TV series, a 26-minute Christmas film, and have published a number of successful books about the two special girls and their adventures. Mimi and Lisa quickly became a successful Slovak brand and their stories are also distributed to children worldwide.
ABOUT BUTTERFLY EFFECT
The Butterfly Effect educational programme was created in cooperation with the companies Sygic, Leaf, Pixel Federation and Hub Hub. It was born as a platform where digital companies could share their experiences with young people. Thanks to this, they can develop innovative ideas or run their own companies and projects.
Our aim is practical education, based on practical assignments and with the cooperation of people from the business world, primarily from the field of digital technology.
Those who are interested have a choice of two types of courses – short courses (according to their study focus) and 6-month programmes (AppsLab/GamesLab) for those who are interested in going through the complete development of digital products.
One of the projects which was developed last year was the game Mimi and Lisa, which was created based on the successful eponymous animated series. This was the first time that a project which had used an animated film as an assignment was part of the programme.
