John McIntosh

Candidate for Director at Large

Bio

I have worked in management and academic positions at the American Film Institute, Digital Domain and the School of Visual Arts. I produced and directed the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival in 2002 and served on CAF juries for SIGGRAPH Asia.I am currently on the Board of Directors for the New York Chapter of the Visual Effects Society and I have been a member of the VES since 1999.
As the Chair of SVA's Computer Art, Animation and Vfx department we are honored to participate in many SIGGRAPH events and have mentored our students and alumni on the benefits of ACM/SIGGRAPH.

Statement

As an active professional in the educational community here in New York I have three major interests in serving with the NYC SIGGRAPH Board. First is to strengthen the reach of SIGGRAPH to a broader range of students and, to encourage students to take an active role in SIGGRAPH.

This might be accomplished by hosting more collaborative events within the many schools in our region and encouraging a celebration of the student work that is achieved in NYC that could correspond with the MetroCAF competition.

Second, to support educational events and workshops for the SIGGRAPH membership as the creative community expands as well as to better support our membership when opportunities and jobs recede.

Finally, I am interested in working with NYC SIGGRAPH to encourage stronger association with other professional groups in our region that serve similar if not related technical and creative professionals.

Ultimately my goal is to both increase membership and awareness of the role ACM/SIGGRAPH has and will play in the world of computer graphics, computer sciences and imaging.
