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.
