Every year around this time we do a screening of the best of the Computer Animation Festival at that year's ACM SIGGRAPH conference. But this year has not been like others and this November we will have the filmmakers of the short that won Best of Show at this years CAF talk to us about the process they went through to creat this award-winning film.

Loop, which features a girl with Autism. also gives us the opportunity to talk about this condition which affects 1 in 54 Americans. Early concepts of the disease were shaped by the movie Rain Man and though it's been a long time since, we are still not past it as the series, The Good Doctor, shows.
