David met his first Scanimate in Hollywood in 1979, and traveled to several corners of the world to keep them working. The ZFx Scanimate is the last (known) remaining such device in service, and has been featured in several special interest conferences. David has also produced and sells DVDs to document the early pioneers and history of computer animation. Dave has recently relocated the ZFx Lab to Asheville NC.
