Next Friday night (6/21), catch the year’s best computer graphics, along with local firepower from Minimal Massive!
SIGGRAPH is an organization dedicated to furthering the field of computer graphics and 3D animation, and each year at the national SIGGRAPH convention, a highlight is always the Animation Festival and Electronic Theater. Following the convention, this show goes on tour to spread the year’s best animation work + achievements – and next Friday we’re happy to bring this show to Portland as part of OMSI’s Animation Festival weekend!
Friday night (June 21) at 6:30pm, SIGGRAPH will take over the Empirical Theater screen. Up first, a fantastic presentation from local motion design outfit Minimal Massive to set the tone! Brian Smith will take us behind the scenes of their latest project, complete with Q&A.
Then, Larry Bafia (down from Vancouver BC) will present the SIGGRAPH program; the theme of which is Generations, and the Traveling Show begins with highlights from Electronic Theater programs of years past. Then, we kick into high gear with this year’s selections.
Those who have caught this show in years past, at the national convention or previous Portland dates, know that this program is the perfect way to stay current. You’ll catch all of the groundbreaking/landmark CG and animation each year in one concentrated dose. That said, this show is one night only and most definitely a must see!
