Have 3D movies taken advantage of technological advancements or is 2D even better? Julius Horsthuis knows the answer better than anyone. He is a digital artist, specialist in VFX and fractal art, and worked on the Oscar-winning movie Manchester By The Sea, and on several Dutch films such as Nova Zembla. From the age of 12 he was already in love with movies and tried to recreate his favorites with an old VHS camcorder. After high school, Julius worked on various movie sets as a sound recorder, clapper loader, and focus puller. Once he had enough experience, he assumed the creative supervision of the film with the most visual effects in the Netherlands: Koning van Katoren. In 2013 he began experimenting with fractal environments, creating his film Fractal Time, a unique combination of abstract and cinematic animation, which was recognized by Forbes as one of the 35 Best XR Experiences of 2019.
