For those not in the know: Eric Veach wrote a PhD thesis on physically based rendering, more specifically on Monte-Carlo light transport. His work is the basis of today's high-end renderers. It's rather cool that such a theoretical work received this kind of recognition. So if you want to see some movie people talk about path tracing and importance sampling, have a look at the video. :)

- Jacco.
