His mission of discovery works, paradoxically, he starts at the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University. They study computer games there as well. “Games are not only played by a large number of people, but there is also a lot of money and therefore job opportunities in this field. We study Game Design with us, at the Faculty of Informatics you can study the master’s degree in Computer Game Development and at BUT with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in the game media studio, “said Zdeněk Záhora from the Information Technology Center. According to him, this mushroom could only have arisen thanks to the success of Brno’s developers and quality companies. This also helped to create an academic sphere.
Probably the most famous studio, where a remake of the famous Mafia was created, is Hangar 13 (formerly 2K Czech). And it was the moderator of the Svědu show who visited Science and gradually became one of the game characters.
“Something very secret is going on behind these walls. And I’m interested in what, “encourages the actor, who is welcomed by general manager Roman Hladík. Together they walk through the rooms where game animators, programmers, graphic artists, sound engineers, musicians or testers work. “It almost looks like an animated fairy tale is created here,” comments Matonoha. However, Hladík soon leads him astray. “Production is much more complicated,” he shows him, creating believable movements and voices for game heroes. Matonoha himself thus becomes one of the fighters of the game.

The actor must first have himself “photographed” in a so-called photogrammetric scanner. The Brno one is among the world’s best. “The actors are filmed here with 107 cameras placed on a special structure. Then a 3D model will be created from the characters, “described Milan Doležal from Hangar 13.
Matonoha then changes into a special suit with dozens of sensors – markers – and begins to discover a motion capture studio. Soon after, he will start a fierce fight with his opponent.

The creation of our guide’s games fascinated us so much that in the end it went to where future creators would hatch. At the High School of Art and Design. “At our school, we also teach Game Art, where we try to prepare students for creation in game studios. Here we teach students how to program, create graphics, sound – in short, from start to finish, “explains young teacher and developer Filip Dufka. It encourages children to discover the secrets of the game as soon as possible. “There are many web tools on the Internet where they can learn the basics. Then, for example, they can try to enroll in our school and continue at university or in game studies, “describes Filip Dufka, who describes the path to an attractive profession.
You can watch the continuation of the non-scientific program on science under the baton of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium on YouTube or Facebook.

Science world series
Under the baton of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium, four parts have been created so far, which touch not only on the stars, but also on issues of life and death. The world’s astrophysicist Norbert Werner revealed his space research, and the researchers from SAB Aerospace described the operation of the rocket launch and launching the satellites into orbit. Tomáš Matonoha also presented a story that proves that thanks to the cooperation of scientists and doctors, we can save not only one human life, but the lives of entire families. In the third part, viewers were drawn into research into the treatment of hereditary leukemia, in which Brno researchers from CEITEC Masaryk University launched a global course.
The project is supported by the South Moravian Region through the South Moravian Region Support for Science program. The videos were created under the banner of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium. The creator of the videos is Filmondo.
The previous parts can be seen at Witness Science website.
