The event creator says
Go flip the light switch. This is real life. Bob Sabiston, inventor and animator, is giving a Nerd Nite talk on the history and tech behind Richard Linklater’s seminal film, Waking Life.

Following the talk we will have a free screening of Waking Life. Actor Wiley Wiggins will join for Q&A. And some lucky fan is getting rotoscoped by Bob!

“It was all a dream: A look back at Waking Life,” by Bob Sabiston

Bob Sabiston will discuss the making of 2001’s Waking Life and the development of its distinctive visual style, using clips from prior work, behind-the-scenes footage, and deleted scenes. Time permitting, a short demonstration of the film’s rotoscoping technique will ensue. Waking Life star and part-time animator Wiley Wiggins will be on hand to supply Ed McMahon guffaws and reminiscences.

Bob Sabiston developed the rotoscoping technique and software used to animate the movie Waking Life. At the turn of the millennium, he and 30 other artists spent a year dreaming up the images for Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking and transcendent film. Bob is himself the director of many award-winning animated short films, going back to the days of MTV’s 1991 show Liquid Television. In recent years Bob has focused on software development, releasing several apps and video games for iOS. He is currently at work on a follow-up to Inchworm Animation, his 2011 animation program for Nintendo DS.
