Freelance 3D modeller and games artist. Commenced my games industry career over 10 years ago, starting out at Warthog on the sci-fi FPS Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter, and a space shooter of Battlestar Galactica. Most recently worked in house for Sumo Digital on a Tennis release for Sega, Virtua Tennis 2009 for PS3, Xbox 360 & the Wii, and I also worked on Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing. I have recently begun to teach 3D modelling and how that relates to games at several educational institutions including the University of Bolton on a part-time basis. Mod work includes development team leader, lore advice and modelling work for the Battlefield 2142 Star Wars themed mod First Strike.

That's right, looks like come 2012 we'll be seeing Star Wars back in cinemas, and this time in 3D, they've been talking about the possibility for a while, but with the current glut of shoddy 3D movies that have had 3D tacked on at the eleventh hour using the conversion process rather than being shot sterescopically in the first place (Yes Clash of the Titans, that's you I'm looking at) I didn't really have high hopes for this, but check out this article with John Knoll on the case talking about taking time and refining the process. If he can get the 3D conversion process to work as well on the Star Wars movies and give as good 3D results as say on Avatar? I'll be a very happy camper come 2012. The first Star Wars movie being released will be The Phantom Menace, so from that you can gather they'll be releasing the movies in chapter order rather than chronologically. 2012 can't come soon enough, as long as it doesn't result in the Mayan Apocalpse.
