SIGGRAPH 2013 Anaheim, CA : Diaries : Day 03

Day 03. Friday

So it was first day meeting my fellow SVs, and it didn't take long before we were all laughing and joking as if we had known each other for ages. Everyone here is genuinely nice, a bunch of geeks that love what we do.

In the lobby of the Hilton Hotel Anaheim there is a life-size Mike & Sully, I'm sure this won't be the only pictures we pose for here. We are 5 of the Studio Set-up SV team from America, England, France & Germany.

We each need one of these Cintiqs for our course - *Phil* wink wink

Figure 03. Lunch, I'm sure you can guess what this

How many students does it take to install a big ass printer? About this many it seemed :)

Figure 05. Patrick with Byron's 3D Printed Robot (Painted to look like rustic metal - and it did!)

After our pre-conference shift we all got to know each other a little better by going for a walk and finding somewhere for dinner. In here we have a mix of people from England, America, Russia/Australia, Poland, Germany, New Zealand and Canada, everybody in this picture is from a different country and brought together for creativity.

I went to the shop for water and when I got back it felt like I was walking into the music video of Moby. Not really sure what everyone was doing apart from posing like Kung Fu Panda.
