SIGGRAPH Screening #2 is locked and loaded, and I’m very happy to say we’re going to host an encore showing of LAIKA‘s Missing Link on OMSI’s fantastic Empirical Screen, followed by a presentation by LAIKA Lead Compositor Michael Cordova. He’ll be walking us through the LAIKA filmmaking process from a VFX Compositor’s viewpoint. After the film (for the presentation), we’ll migrate down the street to the friendly confines of The Toffee Club‘s back room, where we can check out Michael and the team’s handiwork over a drink + a bite.

LAIKA’s Michael Cordova

All of this happening the evening of Friday, June 7. Film at 7pm @ OMSI, presentation/drinks around 9pm @ Toffee Club.

OMSI has graciously given our group a discount for the film screening, and tickets to the film are just $5. Purchase online now, or dodge the fees and buy in person (as we do NOT expect the massive Empirical Theater to sell out). Online ticket link for the film – use promo code ML2019:

Next, grab your free ticket for the presentation! Seating at the Toffee Club is 21+ at that time, and very limited, so this will be ticketed through Eventbrite and you will need to present a ticket (printed or mobile) to attend the presentation after. Those are available here, and we DO expect these to sell out:

Note: you are not required to attend the film if you have seen it and are only wanting to catch the presentation after. Meet us around 9pm as we switch venues. Just to repeat and make crystal clear, the screening is at OMSI, and the presentation afterwards is about a mile away at The Toffee Club on Hawthorne. And please note minors are not admitted to the presentation and it’s ages 21+.

Any chance to delve into the VFX happening out at LAIKA is a chance taken, and Michael’s presentation will make for a memorable night. Join us!
