Submission + - The Zero of 3D Computer Animation (youtube.com) 2

192939495969798999 writes: "In 1969, an artist named Charles Csuri became the first artist to receive a National Science Foundation grant. The grant was for development of a new field called "3d computer animation". This newly released video documentation shows what is arguably the very first time anyone produced 3d computer animation, complete with a present-day voiceover. Chuck is still active and producing painterly computer artwork and powerful animations, and his students have gone on to become captains of industry at Pixar and other famous animation houses."
