+ From humble beginnings in 1999, SAND has transformed itself into one of the world’s most prestigious computer graphic imagery (CGI) events, with more high calibre speakers and delegates due to attend this year’s conference in November. SAND is organised by Swansea Metropolitan University’s School of Digital Media and is supported by its principal sponsor, the Welsh Assembly Government. It will take place at the Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea from 24th until 28th November. CGI stretches across many of the sectors in the creative media industries. Animated content can be found on television, in feature films, commercials, websites and computer or video games. The industry continues to grow at a rapid rate since the global success of films such as ‘Toy Story’ and the Oscar-winning ‘Shrek’, as well as the ever developing computer games market. SAND is a highly prestigious event which is seen as a must for anybody involved with digital media. Touted as ‘easily one of the best shows around at the moment’ by leading CGI publication 3D World, SAND is unique as it deals solely in CGI and attracts companies and journalists from around the world. SAND 2008 will offer delegates the opportunity to share in innovative practice with other companies and presenters, and obtain a comprehensive understanding of the most recent developments in the CGI Industry.
