If you missed the SIGGRAPH 2005 Electronic Theater this year, or just want to see it again, head down to Hollywood on Tuesday for a special encore presentation courtesy of the Los Angeles Professional Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH. This prestigious showcase of some the best CG-animated shorts, visual effects and other computer graphics will be presented on Tuesday, Oct. 11, in the Digital Cinema Laboratory at the Pacific Hollywood Theatre, located at 6433 Hollywood Blvd.
Social hour complete with free hors d’oeuvres and beverages will begin at 6:30 p.m., and will include a pre-show live art performance by J. Walt Adamcyzk. Titled Autocosm: Gardens of Thuban, Adamcyzk’s graphic display was specially created for SIGGRAPH 2005, taking viewers on a magical journey through a wondrous extraterrestrial landscape populated by bizarre creatures, all fluidly animated in real time. Adamcyzk will also speak about the performance before the Electronic Theater screening, which kicks off at 7:30.
The screening is free to LA SIGGRAPH members (membership information available at www.la.siggraph.org), and $15 for non-members. The Pacific Hollywood Theatre is on the corner of Wilcox and Hollywood. Parking lots are available both north and south of Hollywood Blvd. on Wilcox and Cahuenga, including behind the theater. Rates vary from $5 to $10. Street parking may also be available. For a map showing directions and parking information, see http://etcenter.org/Downloads/DCL_map.pdf.
