Hey there everybody. I've been away from the internets a bit this week on account of my attendance as a student volunteer at this year's SIGGRAPH conference. SIGGRAPH is a computer animation conference held every year where studios and tech companies show off their latest and greatest achievements in the arena of computer graphics. All of the major animation studios are in attendance, and as such it's a great time.
There is an Animation Film Festival as well, which shows some great shorts throughout the week. This year's film festival was pretty spectacular in my opinion, and there were a lot of great shorts, including a few I've posted here on this very blog in the past.
The winner of this year's Best of Show and Audience Prize was a short called Oktapodi. This is another student work from the French Animation school Gobelins l'école de l'image. You may remember that crazy french name from another short I posted a while back - Pyrats.
Oh yeah. Check out my new website!
Lots of animation goodness on there, and more to come!
Thanks to Mr. Wirick for the design and implementation.
