In the summer/fall of 2011, I was given the awesome opportunity to work with the Canadian Film Center’s Media Labs, and help develop a thought-controlled video game called The Quetzal. I was contracted to both rig and animate characters for this interactive story, having it completed for Nuit Blanche. Residents from all over the GTA had a chance to view, and experiment with this experience, and received good reactions.Both producers, Mike Evask & Mark Thoburn have decided to go forward with the technology and start developing their next project. If you’re interested in learning more about The Quetzal, or the technology, check out this interview. They also have a Facebook page too.

According to the Mayan calendar, 2012 is the end of the world, but it’s also the offical start to my career in game development. You could argue that it’s already begun; currently working on projects, particpating in events/jams, or networking entirely. However, this year I’ll be gradudating George Brown’s game development program, and I’ll be looking to begin my own adventure. Since the Toronto Indie Guys Podcast has an offical new space, I’ve decided to change my website a bit. Hoping to make it more profressional, seperate for blog & portfolio, and overall easier to navigate. I’ll be posting more, and have a fully functional portfolio to show people. This post is dedicated to a fresh start, and a continutation of many good things to come.

Cheers,
