The Washington DC Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery and
the Washington DC Chapter of SIGGRAPH are proud to present the Feburary
Joey Ponthieux, "3D Animation and Modeling for Aerospace"
This lecture revolves around 3D animation and modeling for the aerospace
industry, from the 1980's until today. Mr. Ponthieux will discuss the
equipment and capabilities (or lack thereof) from his early career
through projects including Hyper-X, the Viking 25th Anniversary, TDT
Tunnel, and his current efforts with the ATOL lab and their task to
assist in the redesign of the National Airspace Management System.
Mr. Ponthieux will talk about the relevance and importance that 3D
animation has played in providing promotional support for these projects
and/or concepts and how CGI has taken on an increasing role in
prototyping complex ideas rather than just promoting them.
Joey Ponthieux is a professional 3D animator with a background in
Television Broadcasting, Aeronautics and Space Research, and traditional
Graphic Arts. He is self trained in multiple CGI disciplines including
Modeling, Motion, Texturing, Lighting, Scripting, and Compositing. He is
currently a 3D animator employed by NCI Informations Systems assigned to
the Data Visualization and Analysis Lab at NASA Langley Research Center.
