AS220, 115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
FREE (buy your own food and drink – it’s cheap)

Let’s get this new year kicked off right. Join us for the first Geek Dinner of 2009.

Ptbanimationrovidence-based Treanor Brothers Animation is one of the world’s leading 3d animation boutiques for the online and video game industries. Recent projects include the Speed Racer video game and an online environment for the movie Iron Man. At next week’s Geek Dinner, Todd Treanor, Paul Treanor, and Paul DiPierro will give an overview of their studio and show off some of their tools, techniques, and recent work. In the meantime, check out their 2007 reel.

Update: Todd Treanor just recently did an interview with PBN – Five Questions With: Todd Treanor.

Please RSVP in the comments section of this post so that we can give the good folks at AS220 an estimated headcount. And while you’re at it, subscribe to Providence Geeks’ RSS feed (see sidebar) and/or join our very-low-volume email announcement list (for the announcement list, send an email to Jack Templin, jtemplin over at Gmail with your name and affiliation).

As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:

  • The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at the adjoining bar and Taqueria Pacifica (delicious and cheap)
  • It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and take off whenever! And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not say the food isn’t good – it’s actually great)
  • Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about AJAX, mash-ups, start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, etc. etc. etc.
  • There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
