2 MCAP students, Buck Barbieri and Naomi Hutchens won Dean’s Choice Award at University of Alaska Fairbanks’ URSA (Undergraduate Research & Scholarly Activity) Research and Creative Activity Day for the presentation of their MCAP poster.
MCAP01, our first project, is getting ready to begin its animation phase, where students work on producing all of the shots needed for the story. If you’re a student, with skills in animation, and would like to participate, visit the MCAP sign-up page by clicking on the link above and … well … sign-up!
Our poster, Massive Collaborative Animation Projects, was accepted for the 16th International Conference of Asia Digital Art and Design (ADADA2018) which will be held 22-24 November 2018 at National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan.
Upwards and onward!
We are so proud of our student managers and team leaders. Three of them …
- Kayleigh Harrison/Ferris State University
- Buck Barbieri/University of Alaska Fairbanks
- Naomi Hutchens/Universtity of Alaska Faribanks
… not only had a poster accepted for SIGGRAPH 2018, but they were also semi-finalists in the conference’s Student Research Competition.
Way to go!
Thanks to the students at the National Taiwan University of Arts, under the mentoring of Dr. Wei-Chung Chang, for these fabulous models. Can’t wait to see them rigged and in-motion.
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!
A student research poster by Buck Barbieri, Naomi Hutchens (University of Alaska Fairbanks) and Kayleigh Harrison (Ferris State University) was accepted to the SIGGRAPH 2018 conference. The poster will be presented at the conference in Vancouver August 12 – 16, 2018 in the Posters program. Congratulations!
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!
