Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, Tor has always had a passion for creating things with whatever she can lay her hands on.
She recently graduated with Distinction from Victoria University with a Masters of Design Innovation focusing on the potential of 3D/4D Printing in the worlds of design, technology and film.
Tor's research investigated how emerging multi-material 3D printing technologies could be used to achieve things only special effects could before. Using this technology, she hopes to bridge between traditional digital and practical effects, ultimately creating a new tool for use in film production.
Tor is currently continuing to explore this field as a Digital Manufacturing R&D Specialist at Weta Workshop.
