LA ACM SIGGRAPH presents its 2014 Season Finale - "Digital Cinema at 25".

Spend an evening with Professor Thomas Sito, Jim Hillin, and Bonnie MacBird who discuss where they thought we would be 25 years after Renderman and Terminator II came out.

And, how an amazing group of non-conformists, beatniks, hippies, military, eggheads and dreamers created something no one asked them to, and no one wanted, and conquered all our media with it. Well after the pioneering film like Disney’s Tron was denied a Special FX Oscar because it used computer graphics, the continuum of ideas has allowed Digital Cinema to evolve to a major influence on global culture with today’s Digital Cinema at 25. Join us in the discussion.

If you haven’t walked around USC’s Cinema Complex, Tuesday, June 10, 2014 would be the date to plan on joining us. The projection in SCI 106 Theater truly supports this discussion on the period and future.
