Case Study

Birmingham City University, UK

Birmingham City University acquired the Milo to train their students. They were approached by Quench Design to shoot the new title sequence for Maverick TV’s production “How to Look Good Naked” using their Milo.

This invaluable experience for undergraduates clearly signals a new direction for the university in the way it can contribute to creative work in the region.



Case Study

Korean University Students Create Magic

In 2007 supplied a Talos II (also known as a Mini-Milo) to the Visual Media Lab at Kaist University in Korea.

The Talos rig is installed in the same studio as their motion capture equipment, and has been successfully used by their graduates as part of a media course – including a project to create an advertisement for a popular board game.
