Recently I attended the first ever SIGGRAPH Asia conference held in Singapore (it’s kind of hard not to attend such a major event when I live here in Singapore!). While the scale of the event is not as huge as the one I attended in Los Angeles a few months back, the spirit of showcasing new technologies and bringing them to the industry is definitely there.

I went for a few talks that I was interested in, in particular a talk by the Thalmanns which covered anatomical modeling research, and a couple of behind-the-scenes talk by Double Negative. The talk on Houdini was pretty awesome too and it really showed the capabilities of this powerful software. I had a good chat with different companies, met up with lots of friends, and ended the event with some animation shorts from the animation festival.

Attending two SIGGRAPH conferences in a year, awesome!

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.
