If I had a camera mounted on my computer monitor and had it streaming a few seconds ago, you would have seen a very happy girl grinning from ear to ear with excitement. What could possibly be so awesome? Spark FX that’s what!
ACM Siggraph is back with another year of awesome movies celebrating special effects and wow, what a line-up. As per last year’s run (where I managed to see Tron and Close Encounters of the Third Kind on the big screen), this year’s line-up is even more outstanding – hard to believe but true! So what’s on offer? Here’s a taste: E.T., the original classic The Day the Earth Stood Still, Peter Jackson’s King Kong, The Wizard of Oz and to top it all off, the awesomeness of Jaws (I can already hear the music!).
Along with the films, there’s also a great line-up of speakers and presentations from industry professionals, including one on creating the aliens for District 9.
