WEEK 9: 'Field Trip' Friday, March 11th, 12 pm - 1:30 pm CASO presents Paul Griffin_Animation 2.0 "The Next Level" on March 11th! Reserve your seat today!

Hey, everybody -

Hope you had a great break and aren't as sick as I am right now!

There's a very cool event happening Friday and with Jean-Paul's permission I've decided to make it a "Field Trip". For the DESN1119C class, this means this event IS your class, so you are expected to be there unless you can't afford it.
For the DESN2022A class, I realize you may have another class at this time. Please let me know so I can contact your teachers to find out what they think.  I would definitely like you to be there.

CASO (Computer Animation Studios of Ontario) has invited all of you to to a lunchtime talk:

"Animation 2.0 "The Next Level"
with Paul Griffin.

You may not have heard of Paul Griffin, but you've definitely seen his work.  His credits include:
Animation Supervisor :
Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game, cinematic sequences,  Benjamin Button, The Mummy, Pan's Labyrinth, King Kong, Fantastic Four, Mr & Mrs Smith
Lead Animator:
Star Wars, Ep I & II - ILM
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King - Weta

It's very rare in Toronto to have a chance to hear someone of this calibre speak about high-level character animation.

Events like these can inspire you to take your work to a higher level.

Cost: just $10 which is a super-deep-discount I negotiated for you (regular price: $40!). That includes a brown bag lunch!

Date/Time: Friday, March 11th, 12 pm - 1:30 pm.  Arrive a little early to register. (There was a line-up last time.)
Location: the NFB, 150 John Street just north of Richmond, accross from the Scotiabank Cinema.

CASO would like to know how many to expect.


Let  me know if you have any questions!
