That the Parliament congratulates Fiona McNeill, from Gourock, on being flown to Los Angeles for the Student BAFTAS after narrating award-winning virtual reality project, AONAR; understands that the Scottish folklore themed project was created by Austin Wolfe, PhD student at Glasgow School of Art’s School of Simulation and Visualisation, and saw off 740 rival submissions to come out on top in the immersive category at the awards ceremony; notes that AONAR follows the story of a Scottish lighthouse keeper; further notes that the computer-generated simulation has received funding from the Scottish Government following the award, and wishes Fiona all the best for the future as she prepares to learn the script in both Gaelic and Scots in order to expand the project.
