Siggraph 2008

I just applied for the Student Volunteer Program for Siggraph 2008 in Los Angeles! It was such a great experience last year that I definitely don’t want to miss it this year.

Well, I guess I have been a little sloppy with updating my website… so here’s some news:

Siggraph really was a blast! I can only recommend participating the Student Volunteer Program if possible. I’ve learned and seen a lot that the “ordinary” Siggraph visitor wouldn’t. And you get in contact with people from the industry – the big companies like Weta Digital, Pixar, Dreamworks, Sony Imageworks, Electronic Arts and more. There are special information sessions for the Student Volunteers, which are quite informal and you can approach them personally. A great chance to drop off some demo reels and CVs!
If I can make it next year I will go again!

Before Siggraph I had some time to visit Alexander Nehls, a friend of mine who is currently working at Pixar as a Technical Director. So I got to see the holy halls of Pixar! ;-)
Quite impressive of course!

Siggraph 2007

Yay! Only a little over two weeks left until Siggraph! This year I applied for a Student Volunteer Position at Siggraph and got selected! So I am very happy to be able to contribute to that fantastic conference.

Next week I will first go to San Francisco to visit a friend and stay a couple of days there. Then I will maybe go to Los Angeles and after that to San Diego on 02. August to be able to start my shifts for the conference on the 3rd.

See you there! :-)
