I didn't quite post all the pics from Annecy yet so here are some more with some glorious captions. Good times!! I think I explained all the details from Annecy... the last night we actually managed to stay in Annecy rather than in Rumilly and it worked out really well, we had a great time and got to stay out late and hang out with our new friends who rocked.
The festival was SOOOOOO awesome... we listened to a talk called "The Making of Surfs Up", and the director and producer of Surfs Up were there. It was REALLY cool. Looks like they somehow rigged up a REAL camera to Maya and animated the film and then did something crazy like "film" the movie like the set was real and collected the camera data!! CRAZY!!!!!! So the movie gets a real kind of camera feel, like the show "The Office" they said. SO cool. I can't wait to see it.
Anyway, onto the photos.
