Good news. Exactly one year after pronouncing the seperation, the team is about to reunite, since Johannes is going to join Conrad to study at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg by this years October.

Team pibytes members will spread across europe. While Johannes is going to study at the "Filmschool Zlìn" in the Czech Republic, Conrad will study at the institute of animation at the "Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg" and Clemens will start his abroad study in Paris at this years September.

Eventough we are sad about the separation we are also very excited about our upcoming education. We are planning to build a network to stay in contact and exchange contacts.

The "team pibyte homepage" will continue to exist as representation and archive of what we have done and is going to be a plattform for projects there might be created in the future. But after all this is the end of the original crew configuration resulting from projects like "Professor Brösl", "Finitio" and "3x4".
