Rio Rancho, NM - Pinball accessories manufacturer Mezel Mods announced its partnership today with 3D animation guru Dennis Summers. The company plans to leverage Summers extensive expertise in 3D animation, texturing, modeling and graphics on products for Stern's new 2016 titles.
"We are jazzed to have found Dennis- he has deep 3D modeling expertise combined with education in the fine arts.
