Siggraph 2012 Recap

Posted on August 14, 2012 by Melissa


In case you couldn’t make it to the Los Angeles Convention Center for Siggraph 2012, here is a little recap to keep you in the loop. We saw a rip roaring series of presentations that spanned three days and included some of the biggest names in the business both presenting and stopping by to say hello. Special thanks to our presenters, Brian Wynia, Danny Williams, Scott Spencer, Joseph Drust, Cesar Dacol Jr., Michael Pavlovich, Kurt Papstein, Frank Gravat, Martin Murphy and Kris Costa. At the close of day one, the word on the street was out that the Pixologic booth was the place to be for live and interactive action. With the now traditional Sideshow Collectibles giveaway in full swing, people were lining up for hours to take a stab at winning one of this year’s awesome prizes. A happy dance is in order for the three winners who took home the illusive prizes. Winners included, Melinda Stanley, John Bavaresco and Aaron Goodson. Waiting was not an exercise that went unrewarded. With most visitors taking home a limited edition ZBrush hat or key chain, it’s safe to say everybody walked away a winner.  With hosts Paul Gaboury and Louie Tucci taking us deeper into the minds of the presenters and what makes them tick, there was no shortage of energy at this year’s show. Here are some photos capturing the vibe and showcasing that ZBrush 4R4 really is, “The only brush you need.”
