So I was informed recently that "Out to Play" will be shown at Siggraph Asia in December! Woot! It's part of their "Invited Screenings," which the website describes as:
"School Showcase of promising student work, Studio Specials from the world's leading animation and visual effects experts, and the Best of SIGGRAPH Award Winners from previous Computer Animation Festivals."
It's isn't one of their Juried Competitions (which is what Electronic and Animation Theater are), so I'm not exactly sure how it got chosen to be shown.
My hamster, Tony Stark, who I bough 6/28/08, at about the age of 2 1/2 months, suddenly and tragically died on Thursday, October 16th. He was a cute, smart little guy, and shall be missed. Never got a good picture of him since he moves around so much, but here he is. The pictures actually look better small because they're all blurry.
I always had to tape his ball shut because he was smart enough to escape it otherwise.
So I entered this contest, aniBoom 2008, which I guess has my thesis get ranked with a bunch of other animations based on how often it gets viewed, shared, and rated highly. So.... check it out at: http://www.aniboom.com/video/289033/Out-to-Play/
And link to it on facebook, blogs, digg, etc. Send the link to all your friends, and their friends and such and such! The contest goes until December 15th, so like, view it every day? I dunno.
And check this screencap out.
Anpparantly "Out to Play" is the 10th most offensive animation of all time on their website. Who knew?
