Bernard Mitchell and iCreate are proud to announce the World Premier of 'A Virtual Dylan', a 3D photo-realistic performance of Dylan Thomas reading again his poem 'Do not go gentle into that good night'.

Through the medium of 3D digital computer animation we have brought back to life Dylan in a strikingly vivid way that has never been seen before. No moving pictures are known to survive.

The virtual head has been recreated by the talented team of animators at iCreate in Technium, Swansea, using photographs, a 3D scan of his death mask, and voice recordings made in New York in 1952.

The concept of 'A Virtual Dylan' was developed by photographer Bernard Mitchell after a life-time interest in the poet, during recent post-graduate research at Swansea School of Art.

The production company Bvirtual Ltd was formed to market and licence 'A Virtual Dylan' and develop exciting future projects.

"Today we are at the beginning of a new era of 3D computer imaging and animation. It is our ambition to build in Swansea a centre of international excellence, in the high growth virtual reality industry."
