It's finally on the official published program.
We got a 90 minute slot to show the movie and do a full making of for BBB. Expect to see at least Sacha Goedegebure, Andy Goralczyk, Nathan Vegdahl and myself. We unfortunately are not in the Competition, submission deadline was too early (6 weeks before we completed).
Other Blender Foundation Siggraph events will be:
- Monday, two afternoon BoF sessions (we want to show artwork from attendees too, please contact me if you want to reserve a 5-10 minute slot).
- Although we don't have our own booth, we've been offered a permanent demo station on the HP booth. They will also showcase new printing technology with BBB graphics there. So, that'll be our tradeshow hangout spot then!
"The Making of "Big Buck Bunny": An Open-Source Evolution
Wednesday, 13 August, 8:30 - 10:15 am
Petree Hall C
In May 2008, the Blender Foundation released their second open-movie project: "Big Buck Bunny," a funny and furry 3D short about a giant rabbit who gets even with bullying rodents. This session brings together the key people who created the movie and presents all the aspects of an open-source and open-content-based animation studio, and how this affects the creative process. The panelists showcase project files from the studio, and even recreate parts of the film on demand! This 90 minute session starts with a screening the 10-minute film and ends with a 15-minute Q&A with the audience."
