Current and Recent Projects
3D "Slate3" - an applied research project of the Manukau Institute of Technology
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.
