Making Piper — Pixar’s Latest Short Film

Join us for our last SF SIGGRAPH event of 2016 for a look into the making of Pixar’s charming short “Piper” with guest speaker, Brett Levin.

Brett works on technical art and software tools for animated films at Pixar.  Most recently he supervised technical production for the Piper short.  Prior to that he was co-lead on Pixar’s effort to switch to path-tracing for Finding Dory; led implementation of the scene description & compositing system for USD; and led animation, layout, and scenegraph teams for Pixar’s rigging & animation system Presto.  His first industry job was working on the Blade Runner PC game at Westwood Studios.

As a special thanks to our local chapter members – free admission to this event!
