Siggraph Announcement

Foundry, the leading developer of creative software for the Media and Entertainment industries, today reveals its plans for SIGGRAPH 2022. 

Foundry will be returning to SIGGRAPH 2022 in Vancouver from 8-11 August with a series of inspirational events, focusing on Nuke in virtual production, Education, Look Development and Lighting and USD.

On Monday August 8, Mathieu Mazerolle, Director of Product at Foundry, will be presenting the OpenAssetIO project as part of Open Source Days. The project, which has recently gained early-stage adoption by the Academy Software Foundation, provides production tools with an asset-centric way of working. This will unlock artists’ ability to find and share deeply connected assets, regardless of how or where they’re stored. Also on August 8, Foundry’s Research Team, Dan Ring, Dan Caffrey and Niall Redmond will be presenting a conference talk titled 'Comandante': Braving the Waves With Near Real-time Virtual Production Workflows

Kirstyn Salehi, Foundry’s Education Industry Manager, participated in two talks now available on the SIGGRAPH conference virtual platform: ‘Amplifying Inclusion in Open Source: Intentional Actions Everyone Can Take’, as part of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Spotlight and 'Mentorship Matters' for the Educator’s Forum.

Foundry will be dedicating its booth (number 532) to Foundry learn and education, and an opportunity to reconnect with the communities and partners missed during the pandemic. Visitors can enjoy daily demos of Modo, Katana, Nuke and Mari as well as the opportunity to meet teams behind Nuke, Foundry Research, Look Development and Lighting and Flix. 

Aside from the stellar line-up of talks and sessions, Foundry is also proud to support  DigiPro 2022, SIGGRAPH’s Student Volunteer program, The Educator’s Forum and the Women of SIGGRAPH Lunch Mixer at this year’s conference.   

Christy Anzelmo, Chief Product Officer, says: “It’s fantastic to be back in Vancouver and reconnecting in person with our clients and the wider SIGGRAPH community. We’re excited to have the Foundry teams presenting the latest developments across the product portfolio, previewing our future plans and sharing insights on key areas of innovation including machine learning, USD, and transition to cloud.”

Lenovo, AMD and NVIDIA are Foundry’s technology partners and will be providing hardware and support for all activities.
