3D Animation Grads Selected to NYC SIGGRAPH Board of Directors

March 17, 2014

Mark Reynolds and Elize Ohira, both June 2013 graduates from New York Film Academy’s one-year 3D Animation Conservatory program, were recently elected to the Board of Directors for NYC ACM SIGGRAPH, New York City’s local ACM SIGGRAPH chapter.

ACM SIGGRAPH is an international organization of artists, filmmakers, developers, and scientists sharing a love of computer graphics and interactive technology. The New York City chapter hosts events such as screenings, lectures, BYOA (Bring Your Own Animation), and MetroCAF, an annual student film festival.

“I’m so excited to serve as part of the Board of Directors of such a great organization!” Elize says. “Mark and I got involved with New York City’s SIGGRAPH chapter while we were students at NYFA. It helped expose us to the city’s larger CG community, and we were able to bring a bit more NYFA to NYC CG.”
