Have you ever been on a flying theater attraction like Soarin’, FlyOver Canada or Wings Over Washington and thought you could design a film like that? Now is your chance! Plus you can win $10,000 cash and a trip to Canada! Applications will soon be taken for a contest sponsored by Siggraph which is taking place in Vancouver, Canada in 2018. For those unfamiliar, Siggraph is a conference where filmmakers, scientists and even ride designers get together to share stories, techniques and best practices for computer graphics and interactive techniques.
This event is being sponsored by FlyOver Canada, a flying theater style attraction we covered here at Theme Park University several years ago. Participants will create a short film that will be showcased at FlyOver Canada’s theater during Siggraph 2018. According to the website:
We invite creators to develop content specific to the FOC Theatre System that supports motion, spray mist and wind effects. Let your mind run free and develop an experience attendees will never forget as they are fully immersed in your creative.
SIGGRAPH subject matter experts and FOC executives will review all contest entries and select four finalists, and then a winner amongst those four. The winner will receive a complimentary Full Conference registration to SIGGRAPH 2018 and a prize pack from FOC including a $10,000 USD cash prize plus airfare and hotel accommodations in Vancouver for three nights (not to exceed $5,000 USD)! Best of all, the winner will have the opportunity to experience their exciting content on FOC’s high-end platform in person at an evening cocktail event.
I know many of Theme Park University’s readers are designers (or studying to become one) in the themed entertainment industry. This is a huge opportunity to have your work showcased in front of a lot of industry professionals, plus win a trip and cash if you’re chosen! Once you write to Siggraph for more information, they will send you a 30-second sample clip to show you what they are looking for. So… who’s going to enter? Click here for more info!
