Walt Disney Pictures' highly anticipated film TRON: Legacy—a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world—is the focus of a filmmaker panel discussion during the SIGGRAPH 2010 Computer Animation Festival today at 3:45 p.m. "SIGGRAPH is honored to host this discussion on TRON: Legacy, the much-anticipated sequel to what was monumental filmmaking in a past era," says Isaac Kerlow, Computer Animation Festival director from The Nanyang Technological University, ADM/EOS. "The original TRON was one of the first films from a major studio that used extensive computer graphics, and the industry expectations are that this sequel will also mark significant achievements in what is possible in computer graphics now and in the near future."
Panelists--TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, producer Jeffrey Silver, visual effects supervisor Eric Barba, and animation supervisor Steve Preeg from Digital Domain--will present a special reel from TRON: Legacy and answer audience questions. The panel will be moderated by David Cohen, associate features editor from Variety.
The Production Session for TRON: Legacy will be held Tuesday, 27 July from 3:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall B. Passes for the Computer Animation Festival are available for the entire week or on a daily basis starting at $50.
