SIGGRAPH: Evening Theater

Filed under 3D, Animation, SIGGRAPH


The Evening Theater was amazing…we saw a lot of impressive work.

New this year is a 30 minute real-time section. A presenter interacts with the work to show how it updates (and prove that it is not just a video).

Stand-outs in real-time:

  • Flower for the PS3. I’m going to pickup this game.
  • AMD’s Froblins. Everything is running on the graphics card, including the artificial intelligence…very impressive.
  • Fight Night Round 4. Mike Tyson versus…SIGGRAPH Keynote Speaker Will Wright?!?!? It was hilarious to see Will take down the champ.

Next up: Juried Reel, work selected by the Computer Animation Festival Jury
from hundreds of international submissions. Here’s what I liked best:

The last section was the Curated Reel, work invited by the Computer Animation Festival Chair. My favs:

  • ILM showed clips from Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, and Transformers. No link for this, but you can see it on Friday’s at noon if you come for a tour.
  • Pixar showed its short “Partly Cloudy” (shown before “Up”)
