The NYC Metropolitan Area College Computer Animation Festival (MetroCAF), the inaugural computer animation festival sponsored by the New York chapter of SIGGRAPH, was held September 30. With only 28 computer animations and digital video projects accepted from all the colleges and universities in the metropolitan New York area, one-third of the accepted submissions were from 2003 SVA graduates of the BFA Computer Art Department. A distinguished jury of leading professionals reviewed scores of computer animation, motion graphics and computer visualization submissions. The jury included: Galen Chu of Blue Sky Studios, digital compositor Daniel Rubin and Boo Wong of Curious Pictures. For more information, please visit the NYC SIGGRAPH web site.
