SIGGRAPH: ‘Pearl,’ ‘Kubo,’ House of Moves, Devil & Demon

Google Spotlight Stories will present a series of sessions and demos featuring 360 short film Pearl by Patrick Osborne. These include “The Making of Pearl, a Google Spotlight Story” Production Session (July 24, 10:45 a.m, Ballroom B) with Osborne and key creative leads; Autodesk VR Vision Series: Pearl: Taking 2D Animation into Virtual Reality with Patrick Osborne (July 26, 10 a.m., Rm 207D), VR Village Story Lab (July 24-28, Experiences Hall, Hall C) and every day access to Pearl on the HTC Vive at the VR Storylab.

LAIKA’s latest (and most technologically ambitious) feature film Kubo and the Two Strings will be the subject of the ”One Giant Skeleton, One Colossal Undertaking” Production Session on July 25, 2-3:30 p.m. in Hall B, featuring VFX supe Steve Emerson, camera and motion control engineer Steve Switaj, principal software engineer Mitch Prater and CG look development lead Eric Wachtman. The film will also be part of the Daytime Selects Break It Down sessions, held July 24, 26 and 27.

House of Moves will team up with Epic Games for a presentation at SIGGRAPH’s Real-Time Live!, demonstrating its real-time body motion capture on the big screen. The July 26 event (5:15 p.m. in Hall B) will showcase the latest trends and techniques for interactive visuals, and will spotlight the world’s first believable virtual reality human, driven live by an actress within an Unreal Engine game world — body, face and voice will all be captured live and recorded to create a real-time scene.

Silverdraft, makers of Devil and Demon supercomputers, are taking reservations for experience demos of the latest in optimised, super-fast compute solutions for collaborative Virtual Reality visualization at the NVIDIA booth #509 and post-production with Autodesk Flame at the B&H booth #767. Silverdraft’s VP of marketing/sales Steve Bannerman, president Tim Tiscornia and CEO & founder Amy Gile will be on hand to talk you through the technology and new uses in product and industrial design. You can also catch Silverdraft at Intel (#711), PNY (#627), NVIDIA and B&H during the show.
