David Simpson is a Lecturer in BA (Hons) VFX, prior to which he had a busy freelancing career in VFX, Architectural Visualisation, Game content creation, Animation, and Graphic Design. Previously David was involved in developing and running the University of East Anglia Foundation Degree in Interactive Media (motion graphics) and lecturing on the BA (Hons) Music degree at City College Norwich.
I am currently co-authoring a photography and architecture book on Sachsenhausen concentration camp, in order to both convey the atmosphere present in the camp through visceral photography, and to investigate its underpinning architecture with an emphasis on why the camp was so unique during the Second World War.
In a similar vein, I have been working on a Virtual Reality reconstruction of the prison cells under Guildhall in Norwich City Centre. Through a process of VFX capture techniques including LiDAR scanning, spherical and flat HDR photography, 3D modelling and texturing, and embedding within the Unreal Engine, the use of a VR headset brings an area usually off limits to the public to the spatial senses of the wearer.
This has accompanied many years of freelance work in a range of disciplines including VFX, Architectural Visualisation, Game content creation, Photography, Film, Graphic Design, Animation, and Music.
