Toronto's Mark Elendt and SideFX received an Oscar statuette this year at the Sci-Tech Academy Awards for their work on the Houdini visual effects and animation system. To celebrate their achievements, the Chapter has invited them to talk about the historical background and the development of Houdini and how it has led to the award. Come join us on Wednesday April 18th at 7pm for your chance to meet some of the brilliant minds from SideFX Software.

This will followed by networking and good cheer at a nearby pub.


So come join us for an evening to remember! Doors open at 6:45pm.
