FIRSTLY, MY SPONSORS
----------------------------------------------------------
The production speed of this project has been massively improved thanks to NeonVisual's sponsors RANCH Renderfarm (www.RanchComputing.com) based in France, who have provided me with generous support on their super computer render farm. You can try their services too with a free €50 trial. They now have a massive 352 CPU's with 48GB RAM per server to steamroll through rendering! Credit where credit's due. Sequences which would take days for my PC to render are instead rendered out within minutes. When searching for a render farm for possible sponsorship these guys consistently came out on top in both pricing, ease of service and a 24/7 automated system. Please do check them out if you are an aspiring animator, you won't find better, and they offer a $65/€50 free trial of their services which is virtually unheard of in the world of render farms! I can't recommend them enough!

THE THREE DOCTORS PROJECT!
A collaboration between HardWire Productions (Chris Adams) and NeonVisual (Xander David-Hugh) to create the ultimate Doctor Who intro sequence just in time (no pun intended) for the 50th Anniversary on a budget of zero with just two home PC's! The goal was simple -- A cinematic HD title sequence with action, abstraction and homage to previous incarnations produced by the BBC. Chris Adams, lead musician at HardWire Productions has created A FULL LENGTH VERSION OF HIS INCREDIBLE SOUNDTRACK CAN BE FOUND HERE:

We have been fortunate in that the BBC have picked up on the project who will be running a video report on the BBC News website (tech section) on the 6th November -- Many thanks to Mr Neil Bowdler and Leo Kelion for their support and kind words!
While Chris was hard at work doing what he does best, Xander David-Hugh of NeonVisual set out to build an immersive animation sequence full of twists, turns and action whilst still being distinctly "Who" -- As an 80's kid it's been heavily influenced by the tone of more classic Who but brining it straight into 2013.

Software used for the visuals includes Lightwave 11.5, After Effects CS6, Hitvid, Photoshop and a few misc apps. I have only around two years' self-taught experience in 3D, so sure anyone can do the same if they work at it.

REQUESTS FOR CUSTOM INTRO SEQUENCES
I do get many, but unfortunately can't provide free work as I simply do not have enough hours in the day! I started off with zero experience in VFX 18 months ago, so I'm sure anyone can achieve the same with a bit of persistence :)
