In Memory of Rick Barry 

Rick Barry Photo NYC ACM SIGGRAPH remembers Rick Barry, a long-time member of our Board of Directors, former Treasurer, and MetroCAF 2005 Chair, who passed away last week. Rick retired last spring from Pratt Institute and had also served on the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee as ACM SIGGRAPH Director for Education. 

Rick was a strong supporter of students and the arts on both a local and international level. He affected so many through his teaching and volunteer activities. His spirit and energy were infectious; his dedication always absolute. Rest in peace, old friend. You'll be missed more than words can describe.

"Creating the Amazon in Rio2" : Monday, October 6, 2014


NYC ACM SIGGRAPH presented this very special panel from Blue Sky Studios on Monday, October 6, 2014.

Building one tree in a CG environment can be an interesting story to tell but creating the Amazon Jungle in Rio2 is a much larger tale! In order to bring this massive jungle to the screen, the Blue Sky team had to consider the overall scale, diversity of plants and trees, density of assets on the ground and in the treetops and choreography of moving cameras in order to give the audience the feeling of birds in flight with unparalleled views of the worlds most unique ecosystem. You can find more details here.
