3D visualisation is at the forefront of the entertainment and advertising industry. It is almost inconceivable that 3D visualisation could have a place in Africa.
What if we broke the trend and gave the young people of Zimbabwe the ability to express themselves through visual arts.
Alastair Ruturi trained in Malaysia and since returning to Zimbabwe has set up a studio to produce 3D videos for clients. However in order to render images into a video stream rendering of the images is required. In order to do this a high spec computer is needed. Unfortunately in Harare Alastair has limited access to one rendering computer from a colleague who is a computer gamer. As rendering can take several days at a time it is very difficult for him to continually render material for publishing.
What is special about Alastair's skill is that this will be the first studio with this capability in Zimbabwe and will serve the local demand instead of having to use studios abroad.
I am a firm believer in promoting young people who can benefit the country. Alastair's skill will prove invaluable to the country and I am confident we can fund him to proceed.
Funding will help purchase a high spec rendering CPU to complement the low spec computers available to him.
