SIGGRAPH was an incredibly positive experience, and I had many conversations that will shape the future of what I want to do with ephemeral rigging/interpolationless animation. I’ve even almost recovered from the inevitable post-convention plague!
SIGGRAPH tells me that recordings of my talk will be available publicly, but probably not till October.

One could always download the file, but for those who don’t have Powerpoint or want to get a Microsoft account to use Powerpoint Online I’ve added some of the videos to my Vimeo:
