Siggraph is in Vancouver. It is pretty neat to be hosting the 3D animation festival, and there are lots of people excited to go. Some of the Animation Film Festival is today.

There were of course the big boys, Transformers 3 is amazing visually, I watched it twice in theaters (once in 2D, once in 3D) because it was just so visually impressive, and of course some of the games, movies and animations that are more mainstream (or are part of movies) are awesome too.
