The SIGGRAPH Dailies is a showcase of excellence in modeling, shading, animation, lighting, effects,...
SIGGRAPH 2013 Dailies invites you to submit a short (60-90 second) clip that shows off something you're proud of. It doesn't necessarily have to be complete work. It might be:
-A model or shader
-A rig or animation
-A shot you lit
-A stunning effect
-A killer cinematic
-A particularly lucid visualization
The work can be professional, student, or even just a personal project, but you should be able to explain how you think the work demonstrates excellence. If your submission is accepted, you must talk about your work for approximately two minutes.
