When my friend and colleague Paul Kanyuk casually asked me if I wanted to participate in a curated course in Hong Kong, I think he was a bit surprised that I said yes before even hearing the details.
I have been to China before, but Hong Kong and Macau have escaped me so far. I plan to extend my stay so I get to spend some time there with my good friends.
Also, I was really excited to see Siggraph Asia. I know it is smaller than Siggraph but it is also very interesting for the variety and type of content.
I will report what I find, and if you are around, come see our course on Physically Based Rendering for Monsters University, on the 20th. Or come say hi at the Renderman Booth!
