Softimage will extend its presence at the show starting with the inaugural Customer Production Challenge on Sunday, August 5.

On Sunday, four renowned XSI artists, including Todd Akita (PSYOP), David Andrews (The Orphanage), Bradley Gabe (Stan Winston), and Greg Punchatz (Janimation), will take one day to model, rig, animate, and light a character, bringing it from original concept drawing to final render.
