SIGGRAPH 2013 Anaheim, CA : Diaries : Day 09


Day 09,  Thursday

 Today was another busy day, but great just like all the others.

I queued for my first Pixar's RenderMan Teapot, my Mike-Pot.

Figure 17. Studio Teardown Time - Working really hard



Figure 18. Studio Teardown Time - Super hard work



Figure 19. Studio Teardown Time - I was presented with a Studio T-Shirt and told I stood out amongst the other SVs as the hardest working. Quite an honour.



Figure 20. Studio Teardown Time - I was also given a reference for next year if I'm accepted to be an SV again, I should quote the guys name and they'll ask for me to work the fun stuff. 

After the studio was all packed away again we were send to the SV office for the closing ceremony and massive Raffle with donations from many many different companies. Things such as really good graphics cards, graphics tablets, Software packages and so so much more.

After a hectic day and last SIGGRAPH day :( 
I decided it was time to celebrate with Steak! And was generously bought champagne :D

.... and champagne, cocktails, and side dishes.... Mainly steak though

Great end to a great SV experience.

The following days of this diary include a tour of The Mill Studios in LA, and a 2 day pass to Disneyland Theme Parks in Anaheim.

Overall, the SIGGRAPH experience was absolutely fantastic!

  1. Many thanks, Nat - much appreciated, and that picture of the steak actually made my belly growl with envy! Looks to me as if you squeezed every bit of juice from your Siggraph experience - well done, these are inspiring (and belly-baiting) diaries :)
