NYC ACM SIGGRAPH and NYIT's Fine Arts Department are proud to announce . . .

On Tuesday, February 3, 2015, at 7:00PM, in NYIT's Auditorium On Broadway, Walt Disney Animation Studios will present "Big Hero 6: The Art of Character Design and Development."

Join Character Design Supervisor, Bill Schwab and Character CG Supervisor, Carlos Cabral as they share the art, process and innovation of "Big Hero 6” an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax —and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, Bill and Carlos will share what it's like to bring characters to life at Disney Animation.
