Derek McQuiston



Derek McQuiston studied art and design at college, and worked in a design consultancy after graduation, but the need for job security to support a young family prompted a career change: he has been a full-time firefighter in Glasgow, Scotland, for 19 years. In between call-outs, however, he knocks out satirical and humorous animations in Muvizu, which is proud to call him its ambassador.

Digimania’s Muvizu 3D animation software allows anyone to make compelling videos in a matter of hours rather than weeks or months. It’s from the folk in Scotland who developed the first virtual newsreader, Ananova, more than a decade ago. Simple enough to be used by children, Muvizu is also powerful and sophisticated enough to produce content for high-definition TV broadcast, but with huge cost and time savings. The game engine-based technology supports any art style, so versions containing your characters, toys and other properties may be commissioned to allow children to interact creatively with your brand.
