Student Flash Animation from course MA500 "Multimedia Principles" at the Manukau Institute of Technology in 2009 - the title reflects an imagined future of 2015. The assignment was "Medical Drama".
In a time when there are too many cars on the road and the world is forced to downsize, even the medical services suffer. What could make this worse?.. Our "boy racer" youth from the late '90s have grown up and are now calling the shots - and saving our lives. The question is, "Are they saving more than they take away?.."
MITCIT is giving official support to the making of 2 short films aiming to "push the envelope" in exploring the Poser/DAZ 3D Artwork technology which I would describe in a nutshell as digital puppet theatre. In my opinion this system has great potential for movie-making, but with most of its users into still image outputs DAZ movies is a neglected area with potential for us to score some successes by exploring new territory.
