Monsters are as old as stories themselves ... and in the world of animation and VFX monsters are everywhere. Monsters can be scary and toothsome, they can also be archetypical and thought provoking ... but what is a monster? We've gathered a panel of monster specialists to discuss how they design, animate, and bring monsters to life. This panel will be moderated by Pixar's Dylan Sisson
, RenderMan Digital Artist and Monster Aficionado. Join us as we'll try to answer the question, why do we all need monsters?
