The elusive Wachowski Bros.(as in Larry and Andy) may not be ready for their close-up (they don’t do interviews), but their CGI boffins are.
SIGGRAPH’s Los Angeles chapter is putting on an event at UCLA on June 17th, that should be a combo of geek-heaven and computer-nerd nirvana. That’s when visual effects supervisors John “DJ” Des Jardin and Dan Glass from EON Entertainment will be on hand to discuss f/x work on The Matrix Reloaded. Also attending will be producer Rosanna Sun of EON Entertainment and David Perry, president of Shiny Entertainment, to discuss the videogame, Enter the Matrix.
The meeting is free for L.A. SIGGRAPH members and $10 for non-members. For more info, visit www.la.siggraph.org.
