Hollywood at the Henry Fonda theater, also known as the Music Box, the international competition known as Cut and Paste took place. I judged it once in 2006! Here's the blog post from that time. The event has grown in 2010, and although it runs nearly the same, it's just bigger all around. There's a 3d competition, and even a motion division as well. But as far as I'm concerned, it seems like the 2d is still the main event. The evening started with 8 designers and a single winner goes to the nationals. It's impossible for people to do their best work, yet in a 15 minute span, they're focused and driven to their final product. If anything between 2006 to 2010, I think the designers are more solid on average. The crowd gets into it. It's a strange world where design can be a spectator sport. I'm not sure how large it can really get, but perhaps if lead designers from different companies went head to head, that would be great.
