In the fall of 2013, I worked closely with the founders of Immersive Design Studios (IDS), Thomas Soetens and Kora Van den Bulcke on the preparation of a Canada Media Fund Experimental Stream production financing application. One of our challenges involved expressing the complex technical advances of their 3D design software, without overwhelming our readers with industry jargon. To our delight, our application was successful, IDS has obtained $698,051 in CMF financing over the next few years in order to further develop their software, and productize it for a larger market. I’m currently enjoying continuing to work together on business development and communications, including pitch and proposal writing, brand development, and new marketing tools including a web refresh.
