We figured we were overdue to do this – time to touch base with that massive global ‘hitching post’ of the digerati…. SIGGRAPH. For 30 years this event has been shining the brightest light down the digital animating path, encouraging devotees of the form to constantly push boundaries and experiment with new tools, toys and ideas.
This collection of films pieces together a representative sample of the highlight works from last year’s SIGGRAPH. Some of them are just wonderfully realised films, some are animated “proof-of-concept” examples of where digital animating technologies are going, some of them are unashamedly pieces of Grade-A eye-candy.
