In 1991, Francis X. McAfee joined the newly established Florida Center for Electronic Communication which was created to demonstrate communications technology and digital media production techniques. As Associate Director of the CEC in 1998, he supervised all aspects of digital video production and 3D computer visualization projects. His grant funded projects included collaborations with Florida International University's International Hurricane Research Center, the Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park, and archaeological visualization of soon to be lost ancient tombs in Sicily. His recent computer animated vision of clean energy technologies under development by FAU's Ocean Engineering department played a key role in landing the new Center for Ocean Energy Technology. As a professional 3D designer, animator, and artist, he employs high-end computer animation software applications to create short-subject films and videos. He has won numerous awards and international recognition for his work.
