View Conference in Turin 2014

Last week Francesco, spoke at the View Conference in Turin, about the hair and fur system he worked on at Double Negative and the creatures that were created with it, for the movie Hercules. I went to a couple of other talks too and now I wish I had seen them all! There were speakers from Dreamworks, Pixar, Disney, Animal Logic, Weta, Industrial Light and Magic...people who have worked on movies I love!

On the last night, there was a dinner for the speakers, held at Circolo dei Lettori. A beautiful restaurant with some interesting art work.

It was a wonderful evening! I was fortunate to meet to many amazing people from the CG industry. Everyone was in good spirits and the food was terrific!

The highlight of the evening has to be talking with Glen Keane and introducing him to my Lobsquatch! Me and Francesco took Glen to a quiet little room and he happily spoke to us about animation. It was as if time stopped! Thank you Glen, it was truly a pleasure!

It was my mission to get a group photo before the evening was over. Rounding everyone up was fun but crazy! We found a room but were soon told were were too noisy and had to leave after only one photo! So our group photo was under a bit of pressure to be taken as quickly as possible but we did it!

Thank you guys for such a great evening!
