Even though the spread of Covid-19 has rendered in-person events impossible, NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is planning several remote events over the next few months to help keep our community connected until we can meet once again. Keep your eyes on this space as details emerge.
MetroCAF 2020: We will soon be accepting submissions for our annual NYC Metropolitan-area college Computer Animation Festival, currently planned for the fall. Submissions and event information will be detailed at www.metrocaf.org.
Bring Your Own Animation: Our first ONLINE Bring Your Own Animation will be May 12. People have found ways of having happy hours and dance parties online–we are going to throw some animation in the mix and keep our monthly event rolling along.
Industry Spotlight: NYC ACM SIGGRAPH’s biggest event will be held in the fall this year, with some of the city’s best and brightest VFX and animation houses giving you a look at the state of the industry in NYC.
Various Panels: We will also be hosting some online panels looking into the sciences and arts of computer graphics in the months to come, details forthcoming!
We certainly hope that you are all healthy and safe during this unprecedented time, and we look forward to seeing you all in person again as soon as possible. In the meantime, we’ll be visiting each others’ screens soon!
