Photos and Story by Heidi Edwards
The 2007 Electronic Theater will be held Friday, October 12 from 6pm-9pm in the Moriarty Arts & Humanities Auditorium (Rm 104) – Cascade Campus. This is an exclusive Portland showing of the best computer graphics shorts from around the world.
Join us for a great 2007-2008 season start with the Electronic Theater, a film and video extravaganza featuring incredible technical imagery. Shown each year during SIGGRAPH, an international conference of computer graphics and interactive techniques, the Electronic Theater is a highly-acclaimed showcase of the best computer graphics and special effects shorts from around the world, offering insight on future trends in films and commercials.
The 2007 collection was curated by one of the founding fathers of High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), Paul Debevec. This year’s collection contains 34 shorts selected from over 900 submissions. Winners were chosen for their extremely high standards of creativity and technical excellence. With show categories ranging from animation to research, this year’s Computer Animation Festival submissions originate from countries across the globe including France, Germany , Japan, Poland, South Korea, Switzerland, the UK and New Zealand.
The night will start with registration, appetizers and socializing for attendees in the lobby of the PCC Cascade Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building http://www.pcc.edu/about/locations/cascade/ at 6 p.m., then chapter announcements and the show at 6:30 p.m.
