SIGGRAPH 2016 will be presenting Making Of Production Sessions for a number of high-profile hit motion pictures, video games, VR films, and theme park attractions during this year's conference. With the tagline Render the Possibilities, the conference will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Orange County, California, July 24-28.
The annual SIGGRAPH Production Sessions program presents the best and brightest visionaries in computer graphics and visual effects. Whether it's technical tips, a deeper understanding of the business, pure inspiration, or a glimpse of the vision behind some of the most amazing cutting-edge projects, the Production Session takeaways resonate for years to come.
Technical knowledge and inspiration aren't the only takeaways from the Production Sessions at SIGGRAPH. Studios often bring props and costumes from their projects for an up-close look at the detail and artistry that is involved in the making of visual effects magic. Additionally, there are frequently giveaways and goodies on hand, as well as time for attendees to secure autographs from industry notables and presenters.
SIGGRAPH 2016 Production Sessions chair Mikki Rose said, "Huge crowds gather every year for the Production Sessions at SIGGRAPH. One reason, of course, is that there's a chance to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creative process that goes into some of the biggest, blockbuster films, as well as video games and other multimedia projects. But there's also the chance to speak artist-to-artist in a Q&A format, and geek out with friends and colleagues. The only thing cooler than watching special effects on screen is learning how they were created."
