This is my first post here but I am hoping I can gain some guidance from all of you.
I am currently a 3D Artist working within the computer games industry, however with archaeology and history being a
great passion of mine I am currently looking at ways to work within the digital archaeology and cultural heritage field.
I have lots of experience creating 3D content and next generation Virtual Reality gaming experiences and believe there is a great potential for its use within cultural heritage. Having seen the work of Solius Heritage, ScottishTen and DDS aswell as others, im interested in the use of Laser scanning and photogrammetry for recording purposes but also for increasing public awarness and experience within heritage installations, providing exciting and engaging experiences.
I am eager to get your thoughts on career opportunities working with digital content and cultural heritage, and any advice for trying to make a transition. Are there any UK training courses you could recommend that would provide a basis to aid in this transition or companies you know of who specialise in this field.
I would be keen to hear of any advice or opportunites you could suggest.
Many thanks in advance,
