Pixar's RenderMan Art & Science Fair

Pixar's RenderMan Art & Science Fair is happening on Wednesday July 27th during SIGGRAPH 2016 at the Disneyland Convention Center in the Disneyland Hotel, 1150 Magic Way, Anaheim CA. Please register today and join us for an evening of insights into the very latest production technology from Pixar and RenderMan.

This is a major SIGGRAPH event in which you can mingle with fellow CGI enthusiasts, industry colleagues, and the RenderMan and Pixar R&D teams. Visit various demonstration areas highlighting upcoming technology, from new RenderMan tools, to pipeline integration, to the latest from Pixar Research. Best of all, you can wash down all this knowledge with drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

In the Feature Presentation, we will be sharing insights into RenderMan 21, and showcasing how RenderMan is making waves in the VFX and animation industry including Pixar's latest feature films. We will also celebrate the work of our most ingenious users with the annual Stupid RenderMan Tricks, and host a special screening of Pixar's latest animated short film, Piper. This special event begins at 5.30pm with the following agenda:

7:00   Special Screening: Piper (Main Theater)
7:15   Feature Presentation (Main Theater)
