Dailies is a signature SIGGRAPH program that celebrates the craft of creating computer graphics. It focuses on exceptionally creative work and the stories behind how the work was created.
SIGGRAPH 2014 Dailies invites you to submit a short (60-90 second) clip that shows off something you're proud of. It doesn't necessarily have to be complete work, but a good submission will briefly discuss the challenges you met and how you overcame them to produce your work. It might be:
- A model or shader
- A rig or animation
- A shot you lit
- A stunning effect
- A killer cinematic
- A particularly lucid visualization
The work can be professional, student, or even just a personal project, but you should be able to explain how you think the work demonstrates excellence. If your submission is accepted, you must talk about your work for approximately two minutes.
If you can’t attend SIGGRAPH 2014 in person, we would still like to see your best work. Please submit a short video with a sound track describing the piece. The best of these submissions may be shown during the Dailies presentation.
So choose the best thing you've done all year and send it for review!
New for 2014: Focus on Game-Production Communities
Whether you're producing art assets for current or next-generation platforms (or even mobile!), and you survived to tell the tale, we would love to hear your stories. Whether you want to talk about how you were challenged by memory constraints or performance budgets, how you got around that nasty skinning bug, or how you did that amazing volumetric effect, we'd love to hear your stories.
If you have designed a particular level, character, or moment in the game where the player’s jaw drops in wonder, please tell us about it.
