Ongoing worldwide travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic make it impossible to host an in-person SIGGRAPH Asia 2020 in Daegu, South Korea in November. Therefore, we have decided to move to a virtual conference for SIGGRAPH Asia 2020.

As the details of this virtual experience are resolved, the exact dates and format will be revealed in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for updates below.

Student Volunteer Productions (SVP Junior) is SV Program's special team which includes a group of students who have skilled video production techniques to create video content for the SV Program. In the 6-day challenge, the team will film and create a few videos to record the wonderful SV and attendee experience at SIGGRAPH Asia 2020. And as a result, the videos will be officially shown at the SV Orientation and the SV Closing Ceremony for everyone in the SV Program. The attendee event videos will also be featured on the event’s official social media platforms.

We are looking for students who have video production talents in filmmaking, videography, video editing and visual effect design. The scope of the work in this 6-day challenge will include the following:

  1. SV Program Orientation Video:
    The SV Program Orientation Video will be creative and fun in style and serves as the warm-up video at our SV Orientation. It is mainly for introducing Team Leaders, Subcommittees and the Production team to everyone. The team will produce the video in the first two days before the conference begins and the video will be shown at the SV Program Orientation on Nov 16th.
