Yeah there should be a few of us around.  Gorm Lai will be there as well.  Peter and I will be doing a prototyping workshop tomorrow night and I think Gorm is doing an Ignite talk.  Email and we'll see if we can meet up at lunch or something.  That goes for everyone on here.

Is anyone from the game group attending the conference this Saturday? I'm flying over from Maui, and I'd be interested in meeting up with fellow game producers and developers.

the chrome app store seems to be a way of packaging any game available over the web, i.e. language agnostic, which is pretty damn cool.  I'm trying to get my game programming/ design students to package up their games in Chrome - we'll see if we can get something kicked out by the end of the semester:

so these new apps for google chrome? i don't have an android phone, are they all android apps ported over? some seem flash, not java. some seem facebook specific(i don't have facebook either)  and some might be HTML5? the list of available stuff is growing fast are people doing anything or just re compiling previous stuff? anyone done this yet?

I just finished working on this personal 3D VFX project last week and considering it for my reel (since that's part of this discussion).

Although this isn't specifically a gaming video per se, it would be nice to get some qualitative feedback from this group since I kind of work in a vacuum. A lot went went into this. I handled the modeling, rigging, technical direction, lighting, textures, rendering with Vray, compositing in Nuke, After Effects and sound editing and engineering.

I'm currently working a breakdown piece and an interior shot of the cockpit with working video monitors and an animated pilot with windows that reflect the exterior scene.. But, one step at a time.

Wow, would that be Hawaii Animation Studio?  Thats terrible, I refered some of my classmates who were media arts and animation students.  I even sparked a few intrests from my instuctors.  Good luck in your search!  I hope more studios will come to Hawaii.

Jeremy, the animation studio I used to work at, HAS, has closed indefinitely. You may have had a chance there, though I was part of the group that helped the production manager review demo reels from artists from all over, plenty of folks would like to live and work in Hawaii. My colleagues and myself, are looking for 3D CG / animation jobs as well, and several of them have relocated (back) to the mainland. Judging by what's available here, and on the mainland, (let alone the entire world) it would appear as though most of the opportunity is on the mainland. Personally, I cannot relocate as I have my own new family, here. Jim, do you employ a "staff" of farm pieces of work out? Best regards to all, -Brian
