I am a Postgraduate Doctoral Researcher with the field of Industrial Design and a Creative Director / Co-Founder at Cintel Global. Currently researching the integrated use of Motion Capture and Photogrammetry to recreate history on behalf of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Cintel Global is a multi-disciplinary Creative Tech studio that works within the realms of Immersive Technology, Video Production, Animation, Software Development & Interior Design in order to create content and experiences. In the past I have worked locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in a variety of roles such as Filmmaker, Artist, Editor, Photographer, Designer & Consultant. I am currently based in Proto: The Emerging Tech Centre in Gateshead. The first digital production facility of its kind in Europe and one of the biggest R&D Centres for emerging technology, it is also home to the North East & Tees Valley Immersive Lab (one of only four in the UK), PROTO is also part of the Digital Catapult NETV network. This provides access to the latest production techniques, hardware & cutting edge tech. Myself and my fellow Cintel Global co-director, Tom Scarborough, are the only individuals from a LTD Company trained & authorised in the use of both the Photogrammetry & Motion Capture Rigs at Proto.
