When: Wednesday May 14th, 2014 @ 6:30pm – 9:00pm

Where: The Pheasant Plucker (2nd floor) @ 20 Augusta Street – Hamilton, Ontario

What: StartupDrinks Hamilton is a monthly networking event for Hamilton’s startup community to make connections over drinks and relax a little! Feel free to talk about projects, ideas, funding, technology… or just shoot the breeze! Starting in 2014 we’re going to experiment with a featured talk by a local startup and a tighter runtime.



Featured Talk

Colin Doncaster – R&D Superivsor @ Peregrine Labs


colindoncaster“I’m a creative technologist who loves digital storytelling.

With 20 years of VFX and animation production experience I’m now building our sustainable studio where great ideas, art and technology can thrive.

Over the course of my career I have been lucky to have worked on the the Oscar winning projects Lord of the Rings and Avatar, along with such directors as Peter Jackson, James Cameron and the brilliant Terry Gilliam.

Most recently I had the honour of receiving a SciTech award for Deep Compositing from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

I’m extremely lucky to have my beautiful family and the great outdoors to relax my mind.”
