I sat in on Ed Catmull's address and was floored by it. Does anyone know if the Siggraph Encore DVD this year will include featured speakers? If not, does anyone know where you can get a copy (legitimately)?

I don't know about the DVDs but I think a lot of what he said is contained in the book:

I agree, I do not know if the DVD would include the featured speakers. But from sitting thru it, but till the disney animation portion, he talked about alot from his book. A link above me has already been provided.

I too thought the speech was great. My only regret was that I didn't get to the book signing he did at 4:00 that day.

SOMA filmed a majority of the event. I'm quite sure whether or not Ed Catmull's lecture was though.

The Encore DVDs usually include the keynote speakers, SIGGRAPH awards and fast forward. I did see the list for this year but don't remember if they'll include the Catmull address (don't see why they wouldn't). Supposdely by next week those who bought Encore content will be able to download it (physical DVD to be sent later in the year).

Hello All,

Unfortunately, the Ed Catmull Keynote will not be included this year with the SIGGRAPH Encore DVD-ROM set since we were not able to get permission to record the presentation.

For a complete listing of what is included on the DVD-ROM set visit: http://encore.siggraph.org and then select 2008 from the first drop down menu.

You can also purchase presentations from SIGGRAPH 2007, 2005, 2004 and 2003. Content from past conferences is still 50% off for a limited time.

The downloads for SIGGRAPH 2008 will be available on or before September 1.

Hope this helps.

Thank you everyone for your responses.

Although it didn't appear on the Siggraph Encore DVD, I did stumble across an article that contains much of the knowledge imparted in Catmull's keynote address. If anyone would like to take a look, this LINK (http://harvardbusinessonline.hbsp.harvard.edu/hbsp/hbr/articles/article.jsp?ml_action=get-article&articleID=R0809D&ml_issueid=BR0809&ml_subscriber=true&pageNumber=1&_requestid=100652) should take you directly to it.

I remember that article! It might be worth posting as a separate thread in GD.
