There is a Great revolution taking place in the 3D industry.
Software developers or hardware manufacturers are all vigorously gearing up for a series of major changes and shifts in the creation, use and delivery of 3D content.
With the advent of the ultra portable device and the plethora of innovative platforms, (that span telecoms to computing), new and exciting opportunities are presenting themselves for growth and development. The improved computing power of CPU processors and graphics cards has also been an added bonus.
As with anything new it has to first gain traction and acceptance before it becomes main stream. it also has to have direct relevance to the times and be of immense benefit to humanity or poised to improve the lives of millions. 3D is just about to get that critical momentum that achieves this.
So it is now up to forward thinking folks to find the silver lining and niche that will ensure their continued success and positive development in the many sectors of the industry.
Right now there is a big deficit in the skill market. On many levels there are opportunities for enterprising organisations and individuals to get a foot in the door and make a difference to the fortunes of aspiring artists, programmers, developers and enthusiasts.
There are many areas of important employment interest and core skill development that can quickly and easily be frame worked and delivered to very high standards.
This will lead to the organisations and the participants involved getting noticed by the right people, institutions and businesses.
In short, progress for all. Jobs, Investment and infrastructure will start to roll in.
Related 3D skills professionals/production teams will see East London as an attractive location to base their activities, so as to tap into the increased pool of core and advanced skilled labour.
These range from those involved in precision technical services, like Architecture, Civil Engineering, Product Design & Manufacturing processes, prototyping & 3D printing to Entertainment products and services such as Games, Movie/Animation Special Effects, (DFX/ Digital FX), Content Creation and 3D Art.
