MCAP 01 is in the final animation production stage and looking for classes and students to help 3D Character Animation, Lighting, Post Production, Video Editing, Sound and Project Management. MCAP 03 is also in pre-production stage.
In this year, MCAP 01 moved to the final animation phase. We also had new students from Japan, Taiwan and the US to join the production. We would like to thank all members worked on the project. Great work! Happy Holidays and New Year to all!
The good news is that MCAP01 is rapidly approaching the end of production. The bad news is that we truly need new student animators. Why? Well, many of our shining lights will shortly be graduating, moving on to the next phase in their careers. And we need to replace them to maintain our momentum.
So, if you are interested in being part of something massive, drop us (or me, firstname.lastname@example.org) a line and we’ll see where your talents can be best utilized.
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.
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.
