Decode 3D event a great success

By PVC News Staff | October 03, 2011

London, 30th September 2011 - Decode MD Samuel Martin has reported that their recent 2D/3D Open Day/Training Day was a great success. "We had a fully booked event. There was an interesting mix ranging from rig technicians, stereographers and producers - people from production companies across the board to students wanting to learn more about 3D production. They had a chance to look at our new facilities and get familiar with our 3D mirror rigs as well as discussing with our own experienced 3d rig tech and stereographer the advantages of the rigs. I personally feel that it was a great advantage to be able to meet current and future clients in person and discuss in an informal and relaxed way their questions and future requirements. I am looking forward to our next open day that will be organized within the next couple of months." Read More
