Michael Hosenfeld

Candidate for President


Michael Hosenfeld is a Visual Effects Supervisor for film and TV, as well as an Associate Professor of Digital Arts & Design at New York Institute of Technology. Based on his education in Industrial Design, he joined the VFX industry in the mid 90s, worked on feature films in the German branch of Toronto-based c.o.r.e. Digital pictures, and eventually moved to NYC to teach at New York University, the Center for Advanced Digital Applications. He joined the Board of Directors of NYC ACM SIGGRAPH in 2003, and also served as its President from 2007-2010.


Having had the pleasure to serve on the board of directors since 2003, it is my goal to use my experience and support our younger board members to develop new areas of focus. Based on my observations and feedback from many of our community members, I would like to broaden our traditional focus on animation, and include other existing and emerging areas, such as Visualization, VR and AR, interactive applications, digital arts, and more. These and other areas overlap, and are all well represented by companies in NYC. As president I see my role as a facilitator and mentor of our chapter members. To support our board in its efforts to create new and exciting events, but also to increase the involvement of our community it is crucial to further develop our outreach and the communication with our members, and the entire community.
