Admin Note: This is mailed to the OLD LIST If this is the first time you have received this message, then you are not on the NEW LIST.

If you don't get either of these mailings then you are really in trouble.

Everybody, it is time again for our monthly séance known as the Austin 3d Users Group.
The meeting will convene at 6:30 PM, Aug. 25, next Wed. at La Madeline restaurant at 3418 N. Lamar, in Austin, TX. Our presenter for this meeting bailed because he accepted out of town work and thought that was more important than entertaining us. Would any of us do differently???

One of our number suggested that we have an orgy of self promotion and call it Portfolio Night. You have all weekend to put together your best work and bring it before the group. I will bring a VHS deck and we will have a computer with DVD, CD and USB digital thingie support. We have had excellent material the last two meetings and really squeezed the speakers for time, so this time we will just squeeze a little more and not notice the absence of the speaker.

Attention, producers and directors, this will be a great opportunity to see who is doing what kind of work. I know that several of you are about to launch new projects. This will be a unique to quickly see what kind of work is being done in Austin these days. Students, if you want to find an internship, bring your stuff. Unemployed artists, show it off. Employed artists, lets see what you've got. Specialists, riggers, character artists, level designers, Architects, who ever has work they have done in 3d show us what you do. Keep it short, no more than 5 min. or so. We will have sound.

If you have special needs give me a call.

La Madeline has a French menu in a cafeteria format. You can eat while you watch, then sneak back out for one of their scrumptious desserts. We will go from about 6:30 to 8:30 with conversation after.
