At TVPP we have worked with Debs Wilson for ten years. Debs completed several demanding commercial projects in 3D animation to time and budget. This led to consulting work for us where Debs was able to develop and introduce new and effective technologies and work flows to meet commercial requirements and opportunities in digital screen media production.
Recently we have been working with Debs at the University of Winchester to further develop our Virtual Parks SA concepts. We ourselves are now a part of a Spanish National Park/Andulucian Government joint project to build on-screen virtual parks. These are designed to provide a platform for public communication and input on interlocking and complex issues about sustainability and management of wild life and conservation areas.
