How does one write a blog post that begins with Greg Broadmore? He is after all the guy who created Dr Grordbort's Contrapulatronic Dingus Directory and is a senior conceptual designer at Weta Workshop where he has designed for motion pictures like District 9, King Kong, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and many, many others. He's the man responsible for the Indivisible Particle Smasher and an assortment of sci-fi weaponry and he has given Media Design School's 3D Department permission to develop his Dr Grordbort's property into a short film.

'Dr Grordbort Presents: The Deadliest Game' is a 14 week  project giving students the chance to work on everything from animating, processing filmed plates, producing 3D creatures and killing them with rayguns.

Media Design School's 3D Department are recipients of an ever increasing list of significant international awards and film festivals including Aspen Shortfest, Talking Pictures, Siggraph and comes off the back of a massive 10 awards win at the Los Angeles Movie Awards.

Director James Cunningham said the opportunity to work on a globally recognised property such as Dr Grordbort, with the full support from Greg Broadmore (creator) and Richard Taylor (co-owner of Stardog and Weta Workshop), was a dream come true for the students who will enter the workforce at the end of the year.

'Dr Grordbort Present's: The Deadliest Game' will be finished late November and available to watch online.
