With SIGGRAPH 2011 starting in t-minus 3 days, we have our passports in hand, our newly published titles printed and our famed charm packed and ready to go for another great SIGGRAPH show. We are debating packing our Bruins jerseys–too soon for the Stanley Cup jokes? We kid, we kid.
It’s a great joy to see our readers in person, get your honest opinions about our content, and learn more about you. It’s also great to see friends from past SIGGRAPH shows, and meet potential authors or partners. The networking parties, fruity cocktails, and Electronic Theatre screenings are really just something we have to suffer through to attend the show. Come visit us at booth #747! Be sure to say hello, don’t be shy!
In addition to meeting Focal editors and marketers, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and network with some of our incredibly talented authors. You never know who you will meet with their nose in a book at our booth!
Follow Focal on Twitter for real time updates from the show and be sure to check out our book signing on Wednesday August 10th at 10am PST at Focal Booth #747 with co-authors Catherine Winder (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Spawn, Aeon Flux) and Zahra Dowlatabadi, award-winning animation producer. They will be signing the hot-off-the presses second edition of Producing Animation.
Travel safe and we hope to see you at the show!
