Business Needs

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment needed a solution that would demonstrate a smooth, seamless zoom between timelines of Action/Comedy/Drama movies, and the ability to zoom into each movie to look at its artifacts/exhibits.

This project required expert web, javascript and 3D skills. That’s a very rare combination of competencies, and it led the company on a long, hard search for a consulting firm that could meet their demands and finish the project on a tight schedule. Their search lead them to InConsulting Inc. due to the fact that our consultants have talents in areas that are commonly not seen in more traditional consulting companies.
