Vancouver ACM SIGGRAPH proudly presents:
with Lindsay Adams of Animal Logic

Members: $15 / Non-members: $25

Please join us for a look at the visual effects behind 300 and how Animal Logic attacked Frank Miller's stylized world. Lindsay Adams will break down the process of how the Sydney based team created millions of Persians battling 300 of Sparta's finest soldiers in fully CG environments.

The talk will feature a look inside the film with a detailed breakdown of the process behind some of the heaviest digital compositing work done on the show, including the Crazy Horse sequence where a 3 head camera system was used to capture multiple lens lengths of the same action that were seamlessly composited together to achieve one massively long piece of killer action. Lindsay will follow the visual effects process from start to finish, demystifying the tools and techniques that are used to create the amazing images you see on the big screen.
