For those of you who don't know this event it's called the EUE. http://enduserevent.com/ It's an event held in Utrecht, Netherlands. It's decribed as having a "mini Siggraph" with 250 of your best buddies, held in a pub, and has none of the commercial stuff, but all of the talks.
I was just announced as the next speaker for this conference and Im stoked to be a part of it. I'll probably be speaking on redering skin with Vray or a nuke production pipeline or working with hair-farm. If any of you live out that way, register for the EUE- I hear it's a blast!
