(July 19, 2001)
ACM SIGGRAPH announced the Computer Animation Festival's Best of Show and Jury Honors Award for SIGGRAPH 2001, the 28th International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, being held August 12-17, 2001 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California. The award winners were chosen by the Computer Animation Festival jury from 678 entries for their extraordinary achievements in computer animation. Sande Scoredos, Sony Pictures Imageworks, is the SIGGRAPH 2001 Computer Animation Festival Chair.

Best Animated Short


Van Phan

Cinema-Television School

University of Southern California

"Values" is a touching story of family values that tugs at the heart and the spirit. Using effortless animation techniques, Van Phan, a talented graduate student in animation at the University of Southern California, chose to let the uncomplicated characters tell the story completely through expression and in silence, except for the beautifully composed original background music.

Jury Honors Award


Jason Wen

Crystalline Lens

"F8," created entirely by Jason Wen over a two-year period, is an extraordinary piece of classic sci-fi filmmaking. A highlight from the 12-minute piece will be showcased in the Electronic Theater and the entire piece can be seen daily in the Animation Theaters. With its stunning backgrounds and lighting, compelling character design, and brilliant camera work, this piece clearly demonstrates the future of independent filmmaking and storytelling.

SIGGRAPH 2001 will bring more than 40,000 computer graphics and interactive technology professionals from six continents to Los Angeles for the week-long conference. A comprehensive technical program and special events focusing on research, art, animation, and interactive technologies are planned. SIGGRAPH 2001 includes a three-day exhibition of products and services for the computer graphics and interactive marketplace from August 14-16, 2001. SIGGRAPH 2001 is sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH, the leading professional society for computer graphics and interactive techniques.
