welcome Welcome to the SIGGRAPH 2012 Computer Animation Festival! This annual event brings together the most creative and technical minds of our industry, premiering some of the most beautiful and cutting-edge material in the world! We are proud to present an eclectic array of pieces, ranging from visually stunning animated shorts and VFX breakdowns to gorgeous and informative scientific visualizations. Our jury reviewed hundreds of excellent entries from all over the world, and created a selection of works with the highest level of originality, craft, storytelling, and technology. The Computer Animation Festival showcases submissions from several categories: computer animation shorts, music videos, TV and web commercials, visualizations and simulations, student projects, visual effects for short films and TV programs, visual effects for live action, scientific visualizations, and games! This year, we bring you an amazing Electronic Theater experience that presents an identical program three nights in a row, as well as a matinee. The Electronic Theater includes selections chosen by our jury, mixed with curated content we just had to have! For 2012, we bring you Paperman, a new groundbreaking short from director John Kahrs and Walt Disney Animation Studios. We also have assembled a fantastic mix of pieces for the Computer Animation Festival Daytime Selects, which can be seen throughout the day during the SIGGRAPH conference. In addition, we're offering an impressive collection of cutting-edge Production Sessions that complement the festival screenings, ranging from blockbuster visual effects to cutting-edge animation for films and games. My team and I are very proud to present the SIGGRAPH 2012 Computer Animation Festival. Now sit back and enjoy the ride!
