Robert Newton - Virtual and Augmented Reality Developer, 3D artist/VFX generalist. TV Editor/Writer/Producer. ONG (Overall Nice Guy)
I'm a longtime tv producer, writer, editor who branched out into computer graphics and visual effects 15 years ago and more recently into Virtual and Augmented Reality. VR/AR represents a new language for storytelling, teaching, entertainment and marketing, and I've spent the last year learning the language of VR and AR. This exciting new medium arrives at the intersection of television and computer graphics where I've been working the last 15 years.
As a producer and a CG artist I've found it easy to seamlessly move between individually delivering CG art to producers and also leading teams of artists on larger projects. With my experience in network tv, I've also helped production/VFX companies develop their own in-house programming. Decades of building relationships in the tv business and VR/CG/VFX world come in handy when I need to solve a problem.
