LGM Day 1

We’re at LGM. Yesterday  I picked up the Ultra Wide Views, Fahim in downtown and Pablo coming from Germany at the airport. We spent the late afternoon / early evening mounting all the canvas and the few photopaper prints; then we looked at Sébastien, Vincent and Jean-Ambroise set up the LightTwist driven Cyclorama. We had a bite with Benoît Ozell, his support for everything happening here at École Polytechnique de Montréal is fantastic. Dev Ghosh joined us after his plane landed.  Jim Watters arrived after dinner. I worked until 3 AM on my notebook.

This morning most things worked as planned but still neded some oiling. The exhibit of 360° views from a dozen artists on the Cyclorama was ready just in time for after Sébastien’s speech, with some minor details corrected afterwards. It was delighting to receive the visit of .Jean-Pierre Lavoie, one of the most successful panorama photographers in Canada, who has pioneered usage of immersive medias in the news. LightTwist made a great debut.

I am running on my last juices, but all the interesting people keep me going. It’s good to see familiar faces; to put a face on a name known from the mailing lists; to meet new people and hear about new ideas. This conference is refreshing. I’m capturing some of the moments on video, but won’t have time to process it for a while.

Andrew Mihal arrived a few minutes ago and Yulia Kotseruba is scheduled to arrive late tonight. This will complete one of the largest Hugin developers line-ups in a single location. Friday night is the conference’s official dinner, but we’ll have our team dinner Thursday night in a yet to be defined place.
