So do we need to do something other than sign up and pay for the animation festival to attend these "Production Studio Nights"? I imagine seating will be very limited and demand high, especially for the Clone Wars screening. I couldn't find any information regarding this except for what I found here: http://www.siggraph.org/s2008/attendees/caf/studioevents/index.php

No mention of shuttles to the theater, wristbands, etc.

My fear is that this was announced on the STARWARS.COM site. We will need to beat with a stick the hardcore Star Wars geeks who could care less about what John Knoll and Director Dave Filoni have to say.

I agree..... and it's at the same time as the siggraph party... :(

The theatre is the Nokia Theatre, right next to Staples center. just one block away from the convention center (no need for shuttles, etc.). Yes, being signed up for the Animation Festival (or say included in the full registration), gets you in.

Exactly, even though they would need to pay $50 for a one day festival pass. This in part is what has me a bit upset about the CAF format this year.

They might know who Filoni is, but I doubt they'll have much idea who John Knoll is.

Yeah exactly. What kind of decission making went into scheduling that at the same time. Still debating what to attend, though I'm leaning towards the party.

You'd be surprised, pretty much every star wars geek I know of knows exactly who John Knoll is. And Ben Burtt, John Williams, Rob Coleman... heck, some of them may even know who that George fellow is. :)

I felt like snoozing 22 minutes into the screening.

Definately targeted to a very "younger" audience.

Not impressed at all with the current path of "Star Wars".

Yeah i agree it's for kids. I slept through most of the movie. I woke up a few times by the LOUD battle scenes. I didn't recall hearing applause of approval by fans after the screening.
The path of Star wars is going to the Dark side :)

btw. Nice meeting you at the CGTalk dinner!
