SIGGRAPH 2018 Here We Come!

The annual SIGGRAPH conference is rapidly approaching, and MCAP will have a presence at the conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada, August 12 thru 16, via multiply venues.

First, we will once again be sponsoring a Birds-of-a-Feather session on Monday, August 13, from 10:30am to 12pm. During this session you can discover not only what we’ve accomplished so far, but more importantly our plans for the future. And we’re always looking for more students, faculty and schools to join us.

Next, MCAP will be presenting a Talk on Tuesday, August 13, in a Educators’ Forum session from 3:45 to 5:15pm. Here we will present how MCAP started and how it is managed. And, very importantly, how it can affect your curricula design pedagogically.

Lastly, the Steering Committee is tickled pink with the fact that our student Project Managers were able to have a poster submission accepted. Poster sessions are from 12:15 to 1:15pm, Monday thru Wednesday, during which you can visit their poster and talk with them about their work.

Bottom line, MCAP is GROWING, but we’re nowhere near the size we want to be. We need students and faculty for ALL aspects of an animation production pipeline. We have two projects underway, and a third will have its kick-off at Vancouver.

So join us, and be part of something massive!

Congratulations to MCAP Student Contributors who recently graduated!

Recently, three of our student contributors just graduated from college. They are:

Kayleigh Harrison (Ferris University)

Aaron Hwang (Yale University)

Agnes Lawson (University of Alaska Fairbanks)


Kayleigh has been working as the project manager of MCAP 02. Aaron worked as the Animatic Team lead and also contributed to the storyboard team for MCAP 01. Agnes has been the student lead for the previz team for MCAP 01.

We would like to thank their contributions to the MCAP team, and we wish them best of luck and joy in their future endeavors!
