Paul Kaiser and Shelley Eshkar are digital artists. They work both independently and collaboratively. Paul Kaiser co-founded Riverbed Multimedia Studio in New York City, which explores the integration of digital art, dance, drawing, and computer animation. Some of their collaborations utilizing motion capture technology and dance have been with Michael Girard, Susan Amkraut, and others.

Dr. Michael Girard is a research software scientist and president of Unreal Pictures. Susan Amkraut and Michael Girard founded Unreal Pictures, Inc. in 1993. Unreal Pictures develops "Character Studio," a professional high-end 3D character animation system published by Discreet (the multimedia division of Autodesk) for use in the film, games and broadcast production markets.

Character Studio (Unreal Pictures) was employed by Riverbed Studios for projects with choreographers Merce Cunningham (Hand-drawn Spaces; BIPED) and Bill T. Jones (Ghostcatching).
