ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
I am currently writing a paper about Social Networks and ideas of the Digtial Atelier to be presented at a conference in Athens Greece this summer
Could you tell me about any COLLABORATIONS you got involved in as a result of being a member of DAC?
Hi Paul - I do not have collaborations directly related to DAC, but some related to SIGGRAPH and other organizations. What do you want to know? Sorry I missed this earlier
Paul - I actually think that collaborations work best with a little geographic distance. My most successful collaboration was with Bob Gluck, in creating Layered Histories. We live about a 2.5 hour drive from each other. This was in 2003- 4. Of course there were in person meetings, but most of it was by email, telephone, and send files back and forth. Bigger files had to be sent by snail mail. One day, however, we were temporarily able to connect on fast server. It was an amazingly productive day - I composited moving images, Bob composited sound, and we worked together. It felt like we were in the same room, but without the distraction of talking. Great day!
I run a social network for VFX and CG artists, http://vfxg.org -- if you like, you're welcome to poll the members of my community for feedback as well.
Have a good one!
