Have you ever wondered what it’s like to participate in a SIGGRAPH conference jury? In this all-new episode of SIGGRAPH Spotlight, SIGGRAPH 2020 Computer Animation Festival Electronic Theater Director Munkhtsetseg Nandigjav (associate chair of digital communications, Savannah College of Art & Design) sits down with five of her six 2020 jurors to discuss their careers, the state of computer animation today, and to hear their reactions to the incredible breadth of content they reviewed from the computer graphics community. Tune in to hear insight on modern CG from Renato dos Anjos (head of animation, Walt Disney Animation Studios), Sidney Clifton (executive producer, Deluxe Animation Studios), Janet Iwasa (assistant professor, University of Utah), Mark SubbaRao (director of visualization, Adler Planetarium), and Natalya Tatarchuk (vice president of graphics, Unity Technologies).
