Thanks to our animation/illustration area student organization the Pencil Mileage Club, several of our team members were able to tour the Dreamworks Animation Studio on April 10th. Since many of us got there early, we got coffee at their own Starbucks on the lot and were in line with Jeffrey Katzenberg and Ben Stiller. Thankfully, no one went uber-fan and accosted either one.
Several team members from our films attended a Dreamworks presentation on layout using Maya.
On Friday, April 10th, director Heather Crilly, Effects Artists Quoc and Vincent Nguyen and PMC officer Liston Morris met with a Dreamworks Effects Artist to discuss the technical challenges of some scenes in both "Buki" and "Meteor".
