Problem with Squid Juice video

August 6th, 2009 by fjorg

There is a problem with the playback of Squid Juice’s video. It is NOT supposed to be jumpy. We will try to fix the problem and reload the animation as soon as possible.

Just a reminder that the award ceremony starts at 6pm today in Hall E 1-2. Please be sure to be there no later than 6:10 as we are scheduled for about 6:15 and it will be a very short ceremony. We will be showing the awesome documentary made by Michael Shu and Anthony Vu as well as the winners films.

Last distraction!

August 4th, 2009 by fjorg

The samba dancers arrived with a booming drum beat. After an on stage performance they came out into the crowd and grabbed a few people. Fun was had by all!  The teams are now in the very final stage of the process, rendering out their films. We’ll be posting their films as soon as we have them. Awards ceremony is Thursday at 6pm Hll E1-2. Anyone is welcome to attend.

For our 2nd to last distraction, the lovely Kitty performed for us. A few of the men were distracted and I noticed even the women were moving to the music. The most appreciative were the tech support guys. But they’re evil, so it figures!
