Technical animation studio swops aerospace industry for air ambulance

CGI Studio Managing Director is taking a day off  for the aerospace industry – to take part in a hair-raising charity abseil to raise money for a very different kind of aircraft.

Chris Guerin, owner of Short CGI, is scaling the gigantic Liberty Heights to raise valuable funds to build a helipad landing site at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. The superhero-themed event, which takes place on the 24th April,  is part of the £3.9 million Time Saves Lives appeal, which aims to to shorten the transfer time for patients who are flown in by air ambulance for treatment, hugely increasing their chances of making a full recovery.

Short CGI are a technical animation studio specialising in producing animations, computer generated imagery (CGI) and interactive content for the aerospace industry. The company has been creating ground-breaking training and marketing material for industry leaders including BAE Systems and Rolls Royce for nearly two decades.

Chris Guerin, MD of Short CGI said:

“I spend my days working with some of the world’s leading areospace companies and so it seems fitting that I am taking a day off to raise funds for a very different kind of aviation vehicle.

“The Helipad Appeal will allow RMCH to help many more seriously ill or injured children, saving precious minutes and making a difference which for those children – and their families –  can last a lifetime”.

“I am delighted to be taking part in the abseil and while I will be in costume in my superhero cape as SHORTMAN , I hope that I won’t be doing any flying of my own!”
