“…(one) segment alone could serve as a five minute graphics primer for every school in the country…many of the graphics are just eye-popping when on the big screen.”

A member of SIGGRAPH’s Graphics Pioneers, Carl knew the early history of computer graphics in unparalleled detail. In 1999, he co-executive produced “The Story of Computer Graphics”, a feature-length film documenting the human story behind the evolution of computer graphics. Leonard Nimoy narrated the film.
The film is no longer available for purchase, so the existing VHS tapes out there are collector’s items! We found this trailer on YouTube.
