    Murdoch University is a public university based in Perth, Australia. It commenced operations as the state's second university in 1973, and accepted its first students in 1975. Its name is taken from Sir Walter Murdoch (1874 � 1970), the Founding Professor of English and former Chancellor of The University of Western Australia.

    Murdoch University Video ; ; **** This video is the final piece to our Master's Thesis from the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication. It is a web series concept created and copywritten by Steve Gatena and Andrew McNeil. This video was originally done for realtor Christophe Choo from Coldwell Banker of Beverly Hills. We want to thank our professor Ben Lee, USC, as well as all of our sponsors Five Four Clothing, Helinet Aviation and O'Gara Coach for making this possible. Fight on! 1. William Randolph Hearst Estate Located on North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, this gorgeous home was recently on the market for 160000000. Originally purchased in 1925 by Milton Getz vice president of Union Bank and Trust, this property was sold in 1947 to newspaper Czar William Randolph Hearst and film star Marion Davies. The original property was designed by architect Gordon Kaufman and landscape architect Paul Thiene in 1927. 2. La Belle Vie Currently on the market for $53000000, this home is located behind lower Bel Air's east gate. The current owner acquired the property in the late 80's and hired renowned architect Michael CF Chan and designer Bebe Winkler to build the existing mansion modeled after French Second Empire Architecture. La Belle Vie includes a private Clinton Suite, home to President Bill Clinton during his Los Angeles visits. 3.

    Please visit our website: This is our final year student project in our Computer Science - Games Technology double degree program in Murdoch University. This video only shows the facial animation aspects of our project and it does not represent the whole project. The 3D model is modeled after our project supervisor, Mr. Shri Rai. The main idea of this project is about helping people with hearing disabilities to be able to speak through the use of computer systems, visual avatars (3D model and animation) and graphic displays. The outcome of this project is software that can contribute to the building block or platform for achieving this aim. Our client for this project is Murdoch University's Executive Dean of Division of Arts, Prof. Arnold Depickere. His dream is to create an application that can show and simulate human speech and how voice is created by using graphic displays, computer systems, and 3D animation. Currently we have only implemented a Lip Reading Tutor using a 3D animated avatar. In this functionality, the user can observe a the avatar and have it pronounce a few words. There are two modes in this application, one is the Student mode, the other is Tutor Teacher mode. In theacher mode, the user can create new facial & speech animation easily just by adjusting a few slider bars. Development time: 11 weeks (inlcuding 2 weeks design and planning) Programming Languange: C++ Graphics API: OpenGL Tools: LightWave3D 9.2, MS Visual Studio .Net <b>...</b>

    The audio and the video recorded here are output straight from Second Life. I haven't overdubbed the audio. I'm giving a presentation to NZ academic librarians next week. I have set up the Murdoch University Island auditorium so that I stream live from my webcam. This uses a site called, which creates streams that Quicktime can play, necessary for Second Life. I cut off the end and start of the video, as I did a couple of dumb things with my camera controls. In the last bit, I was going to explain that it is rather disconcerting to watch in Second Life as it is delayed by a couple of seconds and I have to wait until I finish speaking there before I can begin my next sentence - otherwise I get very confused.
