Siggraph 2007 - Thursday

Today we got up early and headed to Siggraph for 8:30 as Pixar was presenting a bazillion things today. I got there for Patrick Coleman's talk on slicing food in Ratatouille. This was cool cause he was sitting beside me when I was at Pixar and I always got to see his crazy work and what he was up to.

After a bunch of Pixar sketches on rendering fur in Ratatouille, cloth simulation, water particles, water effects in the rapids sequence in Ratatouille, and a bunch of other cool stuff, I went to the ILM and LucasArts Film and Game Convergence lecture and watched about half of that. Then I had to run back to the Pixar room so I could see John Reich's talk. That was awesome and he did a great job.

We went for lunch later on and then headed back to the hotel before I headed back to the airport and now back to San Francisco.
