3DAD 018 : Vue Animation with Michel Rondberg & Drea Horvath from D&D Creations

In this session, we get behind the scenes of D&D Creations and learn how this powerful partnership of Drea Horvath and Michel Rondberg was created. Many people in the Vue community will have heard of least one of these names, so you can discover more about this partnership in this session, what they did in their early years to get to the level of success they have achieved now.


Even they are suprised how fast they have got involved in commercial and non-commercial productions of bigger studios in a relatively short time. It’s been only since the start of the year since they officially launched their services, but during their first few months they has already worked on a cinematic trailer, a historical animation, and building scenes for a big commercial 3D projection mapping project.

Read Issue 22 : Applying the New to the Old – Modern Visual Effects Restoring Original Classics

I was privileged to attend the Star Trek : Destination London convention last weekend, which was remarkable in that all five captains of the franchise attended this one event. As you can imagine it was a large scale convention, held at the London Expo centre and it was a very busy, entertaining and informative day!

54 Pages of Insightful Interviews and Fresh Inspirational Artwork


Of particular interest to me was that some of the production staff were present, including Ronald D Moore who was a co-executive producer of Star Trek: Deeps Space Nine (DS9) and the Executive producer of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica series (BSG). It was rare access to a high powered producer of two critically acclaimed shows, so I grabbed the microphone during his talk and posed him the following question, which was suggested to me by Jens Reinhart (interviewed in issue 21):-

“If you had the capability of today’s Computer Graphics providing the visual effects for past series such as Deep Space Nine, how would you have done things differently on the show?”

I added the example that the visual effects for the Galactica space scenes were much more natural than those used in the Star Trek franchise.
