Dona Ana Community College and UNM's ARTS Lab & Center for Advanced Research Computing are hosting the next Rio Grande SIGGRAPH Chapter 'Open Reel Review" this Saturday w/ Sony Pictures Imageworks Lead Animator Glenn Sylvester (IMDB) from 4-6 PM (location details below).

For aspiring animators and those wishing to move up in the industry, it's essential to have a 'Reel' that works. The Rio Grande SIGGRAPH Chapter's Open Reel Review series exists to help New Mexico's animators improve the content they present by providing feedback from real world pros about what works and what doesn't.  This month's installation focuses on Character Animation.  Whether you provide content of your own or just attend in listen in, this is an invaluable experience.

NMCAC Gateways
The Open Reel Review series relies on the use of the NM Computing Application Center's statewide "Gateway" system.  While we've primarily used sites in Albuquerque and Las Cruces, RG-SIGGRAPH is eager to connect with more people and programs throughout the state.  If you'd like to get involved, please contact them at the email below.

If you do plan to show content, we'd like to get it uploaded before the event.  Please send a note w/ info about yourself and the file(s) you want to send to  Please note: First, don't send the right now, you'll receive further instructions; second, our system works best with .avi and .mov files at the moment, so please output accordingly.
