What’s it all about:

David began animating stop-motion plasticene films in his parent’s garage at the age of 15. After many years of trial and error, David’s short film Humbert achieved moderate success on the festival circuit. This led to work on projects such as Leunig Animated and for ABC Playschool. The increasing popularity of CG animation led David to retrain in computer animation. His subsequent ten year engagement at Animal Logic has allowed David to develop his skill as an animator alongside the best local and international animation talent. He will talk about the process of animating a shot using a case study from Legend of the Guardians.

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.
