Sean Castle - Workshop
Sean Castle is a researcher at the University of Waikato whose work has spanned both art and science. After helping to establish the University's new Bachelor of Media and Creative Technologies degree he was the Programme Leader at Lifeway College's Digital Media department. Sean has written national curricula in 3D animation and game development and his programmes have produced successful graduates now working at Weta Digital, Oktobor Animation and Huhu Studios.
Sean's workshop will introduce learners to techniques which allow them to import 3D models into the Unreal Engine using UDK, and then use those assets in their own video game concepts, familiarising themselves with the tools used by professional game developers.
