triply newsy

I've been holding off on sharing the biggest news of the season, namely, that Tower 37 will be a part of the SIGGRAPH 2009 Computer Animation Festival! I am very much looking forward to hanging out in New Orleans again, and knowing that there will be very high-quality projection in place, I'm fixing the small things that have bothered me ever since I saw the film on the big screen at R&H back in March.

Historical note: My first SIGGRAPH submission attempt was 15 years ago, a short called "Tesselation Software Not Included" which featured my M.S. fire synthesis work. I just put it online 'cause it still makes me laugh.

News item #2: SENE was not quite done with us. Fresh in my inbox was a note saying that we won the Audience Award for Best Animated Film!

Finally: The Hollywood East Film Festival in Connecticut has also decided to fold us into their program. Sadly, it appears that the show has been reduced from an April weekend to a full-day Tuesday. I'm sure there's a story behind that. We will be in familiar company (see the screening list here), including some of our friends from the SENE animation block (see previous post).
