I attended SIGGRAPH 2008 recently in Los Angeles, California. I was there primarily to attend the masterclasses, which covered a variety of areas such as rigging, lighting, animation, and even scripting. I also managed to find some spare time to attend some sessions in the main SIGGRAPH conference and exhibition area. The showcase of new technologies were simply amazing and I think that’s what SIGGRAPH is about: bringing new technologies to the industry, year after year. I enjoyed the industry talk sessions too since they showed a lot of behind-the-scenes footages, and sometimes even sharing some in-house tips and tricks that they use in production. After the trip, I gathered some good ideas for implementations that I can try out in the near future. I also got to see quite a number of graphics researchers (e.g. Jos Stam!) whose names I have seen in great research papers, and spent a couple of days touring Hollywood as well. Fruitful trip indeed!

I am a Senior Technical Director with strong interests in both tech and art. My life evolves round VFX, photography, software engineering, tools programming and generally anything that looks / sounds cool.
I have done a variety of CG programming, including fluid sims, muscles, soft/rigid bodies, raytracing etc. These knowledge complement the visual works that I do as a TD in VFX.
I was interviewed by The Straits Times in May 2014 for my VFX work in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
