As seems to happen all too quickly, the last day of SIGGRAPH was once again upon me. I left the house this morning looking at my watch, trying to remember what time we were officially married. Today was my 14th wedding anniversary, and I asked my wife what time it actually occurred at, as I wanted to at least text her if I could at the precise moment (you know how us die-hard romantics are). We knew it was after noon, most likely between 1pm and 2pm. Since neither of us could remember exac...

Today was another great day at the show, and I arrived inspired and ready to dive into a few Production Sessions as well as spend some time on the expo floor. I try to break up my limited schedule pretty evenly among the large-scale "making-of" presentations and the technical talks, panels, and papers, but it's always a difficult juggling act as you simply can't be in two places at one time. This year, I think I skewed much more heavily towards the former, as it's one of the f...

SANTA MONICA — ArsenalFX Color (www.arsenalfxcolor.tv) has been nurturing the next generation of colorists for television — a field that it feels is drastically lacking in new talent. The company recently announced the promotion of both Rory Gordon and Greg Werner to senior colorists. Both were previously colorists at the studio.

My second day at the show began with some light rain on the drive in, not so common for the first day of August in Southern California. Once I arrived, I decided to begin by attending the Production Session called "Stories the Ocean Tells Us: The Making of Moana," presented by a panel from Walt Disney Animation Studios, including three people I used to work with there many years ago, Kyle Odermatt, Dale Mayeda, and Hank Driskill. They focused on a number of production challenge...

After a year away, SIGGRAPH is back in Los Angeles, and once more, I'm fortunate enough to spend a few days checking out the latest tech, production recaps, and other highlights those in the visual effects, animation, and computer graphics fields have to offer. I couldn't come to the show on Sunday due to prior obligations, but was happy to start my week off here. Attending provides me an opportunity to immerse myself in the latest trends and techniques, all of which I share with t...
