  SIGGRAPH: A first-timer's trip to The Big Easy
Posted By John LePore
I can't wait to head to Siggraph- I'm looking forward to seeing the show for the first time, visiting New Orleans, and having a chance to geek out without my wife ridiculing me. While I'm at Siggraph, I'll be using this space to post my impressions coming from a motion graphics perspective. I'll be at the show, representing for the Perception NYC crew (where I reside as ACD), as well as giving presentations at the Maxon booth, talking about my use of Cinema 4D.

But, you may not be getting a true IMAX experience at your local theater complex, depending on what film you are seeing. My article will uncover the differences between the latest Hollywood blockbuster type of film being shown at an IMAX theater verses a true IMAX film which is shot, edited, and mixed in the IMAX format from start to finish. 

Another interesting aspect about surround sound is how impractical 10.2 is and how it is not commercially viable for either the home market or the film industry as of yet. But, clearly, 10.2 would be great asset to IMAX film makers and theaters. The current IMAX audio format has room for improvement and 10.2 could be a match made in heaven. I hope my article will help facilitate these two discreet formats to come together as one.
