"Dailies is a very special program because it celebrates the artists who create computer graphics," noted Mark Elendt, SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies Chair from Side Effects Software Inc. "The variety of work presented also keeps the event fresh and interesting - there really is something for everyone, including feature film shot break-downs, game art and design, scientific visualization, and even jewelry design."

According to Elendt, attendees will be astounded by the sheer excellence displayed in modeling, shading, animation, lighting, effects, and more as part of the can't-miss SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies. With less than two minutes for each presentation, artists are challenged to get their stories across in a fast-paced, exciting environment.

The SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies program is sponsored by DreamWorks Animation and available only to Full and Select Conference pass holders. Tickets can be purchased at s2014.SIGGRAPH.org and start at $230 USD. For the full lineup of Dailies, visit s2014.SIGGRAPH.org/attendees/dailies.
