VES New Zealand – A Biography of the Pixel

Auckland University of Technology has extended an invitation to all VFX Industry Professionals in New Zealand for a Zoom Presentation/Q&A with Alvy Ray Smith. This event is host by the LA ACM Siggraph.

  • WEDNESDAY 29th SEPT at 2:00 pm NZT
  • TUESDAY 28th SEPT at 6:00 pm PDT

About the talk:

Many CG innovations taken for granted today can be traced back to a handful of pioneers. Alvy Ray Smith, co-founder of Pixar, shares these interesting stories, taking us up to the point where the first Toy Story movie is made, and where all these stories, related by the concept of digital light, come together.

This is followed by a discussion/Q&A with this pioneer of animation, moderated by Ed Lantz.
