In memory of Anthony John Dyson (1947 – 2016)
Best known for being R2-D2s ‘Dad’.
I worked with Tony since 2011, we met online in Second Life, and he agreed to be head of jury for the 48 Hour Film Project Machinima. We soon started creating machinima together, which he called ‘real time animation’. In 2013 we met in Malta, and I quit my day-job to work full-time on producing animated shorts and e-books with Tony. We met again in Finland for the Robotics conference, and later in Gozo, Xlendi, where we rented an office together.
Tony was more than a tutor, he was my inspiration and best friend. There are plenty of stories to tell about him, and our projects, but today I will share a personal memory.
Today, March 7th, 2016 – just 6 days before his 69th birthday – his ashes will be spread in Gozo.
