I will be doing a lecture and demo at this year's Evolve CG conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The event will take place on May 15 and 16.
"EvolveCG was specifically created to help students in areas with low-to-zero animation industry presence or access, the opportunity to both learn and observe from some of the best Computer Graphic, and Visual Effects Artist in the world. This event is designed by professionals to provide a purely educational experience for both students and professionals alike."
More information can be found here.
There is also an art contest being held too. Its called the Hunter Challenge.
"The Hunter challenge asks participants to study and create the ultimate Hunter character/scenario. Is it a human, creature, or not even of this planet? We want to know everything that makes them so effective at tracking their prey. Things like, what type of gear or weaponry they use that enables them to be the best at what they do? Where are their hunting grounds located- is it some far off distant out back planet or a future earth? Etc. Just make sure to depict it all through your work, and in your final piece."

And there is an short video(!) interview I did for them here.
And finally, the FuturePoly workshop has been SOLD OUT. We apologize to those that couldn't make it. We will try to do some more in the future. :)
