"Dailies is a very special program because it celebrates the artists who
create computer graphics," noted Mark Elendt, SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies
Chair from Side Effects Software Inc. "The variety of work presented
also keeps the event fresh and interesting - there really is something
for everyone, including feature film shot break-downs, game art and
design, scientific visualization, and even jewelry design."
According to Elendt, attendees will be astounded by the sheer excellence
displayed in modeling, shading, animation, lighting, effects, and more
as part of the can't-miss SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies. With less than two
minutes for each presentation, artists are challenged to get their
stories across in a fast-paced, exciting environment.
The SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies program is sponsored by DreamWorks Animation
and available only to Full and Select Conference pass holders. Tickets
can be purchased at s2014.SIGGRAPH.org and start at $230 USD. For
