To Whom It May Concern:

I have over 20 years of experience in 3d visualization and video production since my first job with an ABC affiliate in Huntsville, AL.  I have worked as a 3d generalist leveraging over 10 years of experience in 3d scanning for consulting, production and training for the video game and film/television industry.  Previous works include scanning, 3d modeling and project management for clients such as Boeing, Google, Apple, Microsoft and film and television projects such as Underworld, Twilight, Where The Wild Things Are, Edge of Tomorrow, Fast and the Furious 8, the Sleepy Hollow TV series as well as projects for the Smithsonian Museum.  I frequently have been employed as a lead and project manager since I was hired as an art director for an internet company in 1997.  I have worked in augmented/virtual reality as far back as 1999 most notably for an AR onsite kiosk for the Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.   Project management experience includes tracking budgets, assets and artists using Microsoft Excel, Project, Visio and Access and I recently managed a crew of 12 freelancers on 3 continents developing Unity3d VR based training applications.

Thank You,
Jeffrey Wilson

  • Get It Right Enterprises is not only a start-up company; but also new in the 3D visual training industry. Jeffrey Wilson has proven to be a very trustworthy contractor. The technical advice I have received matches appropriate technologies with the training products I am developing. Even more importantly, Jeffrey executed the plans on cost and on schedule and delivered products that exceeded expectations.

  • Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jeff as a coworker, mentor and friend. Jeff has an impressively wide array of knowledge, both technical and artistic. He’s a great problem solver, willing to think outside the box, learn new techniques on the fly and step up to any challenge. He can be a generalist one moment, but zero in on an area of specialty when necessary. Beyond his knowledge and skills, he’s also very professional, patient and just has great character all around.

    It’s always a pleasure working with Jeff and I believe any studio would be lucky to have such a talented guy as an addition to their team.
