Experiential content agency Spinifex makes three hires

Experiential content agency Spinifex has made three new hires, including a lead real-time artist, a unity developer and a senior producer.

In his prior role with the agency Portingale was the head of 3D.

Jonathan Kafkaris also joins the agency in the role of unity developer. He was previously a scientific computational officer at the University of Sydney for a year.

In other appointments for the agency, James Betar has started as a senior producer.

Tracey Taylor, who joined Spinifex as MD in February last year, said in a statement: “It isn’t about real-time taking over from traditional rendered content – this is about understanding that the two areas have blended into a new content offering.

“The opportunities offered by the use of game engines with real-time creation and rendering is revolutionising the entire customer experience.

“The new additions to our real-time team will work seamlessly with the rest of the creative content teams and creative technologists to continue to offer services that match current and future demand.”
