SIGGRAPH 2001 Announces Best Animated Short & Jury Honors Award(July 19, 2001)
Best Animated Short
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
"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.
