Design Research :: Democratization of 3D Animation

(Tel Aviv Universtity, 1998-2003)

Domain Expert, Researcher

For several years I had a research collaboration with Dr. Doron Friedman, a computer scientist interested in Artificial Intelligence in art and entertainment. We began by teaching a computer to control editing and camera placement in a soap opera, based on a somewhat formalized script, and proceeded to build an entire curiculuum in both our departments, to deal with automating several aspects of a TV production in 3D animation.

Towards the end of the period, I created this website on CD to document what we've done.
