StudioCruz has fifteen years' experience developing exhibits for trials and hearings. Digital exhibits are demonstrably accurate in dimension and duration. They can also be interactive - in other words, able to change their viewpoint and detail in response to the flow of argument in court. We have the same length of experience of mission critical courtroom projection using duplicated laptops, projectors, and software. Download StudioCruz' PDF litigation graphics brochure here. Click on the thumbnail images below for more details on those projects.
One of a series of large format exhibit boards prepared for Matteoni, O'Laughlin & Hechtman for an eminent domain case related to power lines. Developed in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Rhino for maximum editability during the case depending on argument each day.
A Rhinoceros terrain model used in Santa Cruz High Court. Developed by StudioCruz for Bardellini, Straw, Cavin & Bupp LLP. The case centered on the safety of an alternative access to a house that did not cross a neighbor's property. The plaintiffs won; a descriptive video of the project is here.
Frames from a forensic animation created for the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department, recreating the shooting of two Santa Cruz police officers in 2013. The animation is not available for public viewing. Development in Blender.
Frames from an animation created for an eminent domain case for Dr Donn Campion; lead attorneys were Matteoni & Partners of San Jose. Built in 3D Studio Max to replace a physical model that did not show critical terrain modeling suitably due to the diffuse court lighting.
Digitally amended photographs showing the environmental impact of a proposed power line. Digital photography and replacement work done in Blender by StudioCruz for Wittwer Parkin LLP, acting for the plaintiffs. The plaintiffs won against PG&E and the proposed line route was abandoned.
A SketchUp illustration of StudioCruz' standard installation for courtroom presentation. The PDF guide from which this comes is available here. StudioCruz is happy to give on-site presentations to litigators of the possibilities that digital exhibits offer.
A screenshot of a SketchUp model created for Robert Goldspink, Architect, showing various sightlines around a proposed house in Aptos. This was used in a Coastal Commission hearing to determine the suitability of the dwelling. Provably accurate dimensioning was key in this project.
Two images from a series of eight made by StudioCruz for a patent application. The images were developed from a 3D computer model of the device. 3D models ensure accuracy and completeness, essential for critical illustration work.
