Good, Better, Best: Making Your 3D Shots Stand Out in a Crowded Market

Good, Better, Best: Making Your 3D Shots Stand Out in a Crowded Market

Date: Wednesday 6th June 2012

Time: 7:00pm to approx 8:00pm

For June and July Events this year, Metro has generously offered us a home while the CoFA building site closes EG02 (our venue of recent years). Please travel that extra few blocks up Oxford Street to Paddington Town Hall and the Chauvel Cinema where you will find us in the Studio at Metro (a great place to know about as it offers excellent short courses in filmmaking and digital techniques).

Speaker: Andrew Silke

What’s it all about:
Andrew Silke is an award winning animator and 3d generalist whose credits include: Avatar, the Harry Potter films and the Happy Feet movies. An AFI nominee and the creator of the short films Cane-Toad and Samurice, both which featured in the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre, Andrew will speak to ACM SIGGRAPH (Sydney Professional Chapter) members about what it takes to turn competent work into excellent work.

Andrew is passionate about passing on what he has learned from working in world class studios around the world and has written many popular tutorials. His animation rigs are used by thousands of animators around the world and he was the founder of the not-for-profit 3D training web videos, GuerrillaCG.

Andrew also works as an independent CG trainer and mentor whose goal is to enable his students to stand out in a competitive job market, extending their abilities well beyond the student level and positioning them for professional positions within the CG industry.

Cost: Free for Siggraph members. $5 cover charge for refreshments for guests and non-members.
(Attendees can sign up as a new member on the night. Annual Membership fees are $40 for professionals and $20 for students)

RSVP: Why don’t you RSVP for Good, Better, Best using Facebook so we have an idea how many of you are likely to show up?

Probably best known for the annual SIGGRAPH International conference on computer graphics for film, televisions and new media industries, ACM SIGGRAPH also puts on a variety of programs year-round and worldwide to benefit the SIGGRAPH community. The event listed above is hosted by our local chapter and is free for all chapter members.
