VIDEO SLOT: Kiwis Can Fly

Posted Wednesday 21 Nov 2018

Congratulations to Courtney Gilbert, whose 3D animated series Kiwis Can Fly recently won the Big Pitch at the SPADA Conference, which means she'll be taking her project to international markets next year. Kiwis Can Fly follows a determined Kiwi named K?ri who dreams of flying, and was produced as a thesis production for Courtney's final year in Creative Media Production at Massey University. The final product was four completed episodes and a mixed reality game accompaniment using hololens technology. We wish you well Courtney!
