Spider-Man 3 behind the scenes at SIGGRAPH


MUMBAI: At SIGGRAPH 2007, the 34th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, discussions will take place as the leading artists on Spider-Man 3 will reveal the creative challenges and technical achievements in creating the triple threat of the movie’s dangerous villains.


SIGGRAPH 2007 will be held from 5 – 9 August 2007 in San Diego, California, USA.


For the first time in its history, Sony Pictures Imageworks produced fully articulated, performing CG characters entirely composed of dynamically generated particles and fluids. These digital characters, which embodied key-framed performance animation, interacted with each other and with live-action characters in real and synthetic environments. Academy Award-winning senior visual effects supervisor Scott Stokdyk, digital effects supervisors Ken Hahn and Peter Nofz, and animation director Spencer Cook explore their experience in bringing these legendary characters and this series to life at SIGGRAPH 2007.


“This is just one of many rare opportunities to experience the behind-the-scenes perspective from Hollywood’s industry experts. In fact, we have an amazing line up of talent presenting work in Shrek, Spider-Man 3, and the Oscar winner, Happy Feet,” stated special sessions co-chair Jerome Solomon.


SIGGRAPH 2007 will bring an estimated 25,000 computer graphics and interactive technology professionals from six continents to San Diego. SIGGRAPH 2007 includes a three-day exhibition of products and services from the computer graphics and interactive marketplace from 7 – 9 August 2007. More than 250 international exhibiting companies are expected.
