The Bahamas is missing out on potential jobs in the technology industry, according to a boutique architectural and interior design company.
Alex Holden, brand manager at Bahamian-owned SugarApple Studio, said the company recognized a gap in the market and decided to capitalize on it.
"There are countries like India that the rest of the world outsources cheap labor in those sectors, but I find that we are undersupplying in that regard. I feel like we could be supplying more and outsourcing more to other countries," he revealed.
The company's latest venture is an intense eight-week 3D Studio Max Training Course beginning at the end of the month. Holden told Guardian Business that the course is designed for persons who are interested in conceptual design, architecture, gaming level design, 3D
animations, film VFX and realtime apps.
"We are aiming to provide the course to architectural students at The College of The Bahamas, or anyone who is interested in video game design. It can be used for gaming, animation and for those looking to get in the movie industry," Holden noted.
He added that the $500 course will span over an eight-week period, equating to eight two-hour sessions, once per weekend.
Despite being open for only two years, Holden said business for the Fort Lauderdale-based operation has been steady. One area of business that has been booming for SugarApple Studio has been architectural projects. He pointed out that this field is already a successful industry in The Bahamas.
"So far, we have done a lot of architectural work for some big clubs in southern Miami, one in Dubai and another in Moscow. We are now undertaking major projects here in Nassau," Holden said. "We are looking to get more projects and continue to give The Bahamas quality architectural work."
Holden did admit to Guardian Business that the animation side of the business has not been nearly as successful as the architectural side. He believes that Bahamian society hinders that development, as labor is often funneled into the country's more regulated industries.
"In terms of there being a market for animation, I really don't think that it exists, but I do believe that there is a desire to have one."
He continued, "For example, if you were to talk to any 10-year-old child that has watched a Pixar animated movie, they will probably want to know how it is made and if they can do it themselves."
Holden shared that the course's primary focus is to provide a service that is drastically being undersupplied to Bahamians.
"It (the course) will draw attention to our services, so I believe it will have some positive side effects for marketing of our animation services," he added. "We saw a gap in the market and felt like we needed to supply it at a very affordable price for all."
A dog's bark has taken on a sinister meaning for residents in the Big Pond area. Most times it signals that some sort of criminal activity is taking place.
So when Orlando Sears heard a dog's bark yesterday afternoon, he knew that something was wrong.
And as it turned out, his neighbor's home was being broken into.
"It was like a movie," Sears said referring to yesterday's break-in at a residence on Tucker Road.
Sears said he was walking over to another neighbor's house shorly after noon when he noticed a man acting a little strange.
He said he went back into his house to observe the man.
Sears said he watched as the man walked past his neighbor & ...

The recent spate of violence in New Providence, I am sure, does not come as a surprise to many Bahamians. We have after all had four murder records in five years and we are on the brink of another record year for crime.
We watch the news as reports suggest how thugs execute their rivals in what surely are scenes taken from a Hollywood action movie. We watch as the bodies of our nation's future are covered in blood and wrapped in white sheets while being placed in hearses. It seems as if Bahamians have come to accept these acts of violence and the images of murdered men on our streets.
But where we are going now is totally out of order. The reported robbery of a grandmother and her grandchildren last Friday morning has to make the hair on your skin crawl - that is, if you are not already numbed to all the senseless crimes that occur in our country. The helpless and harmless grandmother, aged 70, was shot several times. According to her grandson, she was shot after the robbers already had her family's money and material possessions. Latest reports were that she was in critical condition in the hospital.
Police reports suggest a lot of the murders are revenge killings. I do not support this type of killing. But even if you do, what has this elderly woman done to deserve being shot and left for dead? The culprits already had what they came for.
I have one living grandmother and she is 87-years-old. I can't tell you the sense of protection that me, my family and the community have for her. Many of us still have elderly family who can't protect themselves and they should be left alone to enjoy life in their old age. They shouldn't be looking into the barrel of a loaded gun. They should be highly respected and taken care of in all their travels.
I am outraged that a crime of this nature has occurred and even more outraged that there are people out there who know what happened and have not yet reported the facts to police. Are some of us totally void of feeling or emotion? That lady could have been my grandmother.
The Bahamas Christian Council (BCC) has come up with the idea of dropping information in a box so that police can use these tips to apprehend criminals. I think this is a very good idea.
I implore Bahamians to use the senseless shooting of this grandmother as a rallying cry so that we can collectively combat our crime issue. No one is safe. Just two weeks ago a toddler was allegedly killed by someone known to him. Another two men were shot dead 48 hours after this grandmother was shot. Additionally, an 11-year-old is now fighting for his life after being shot as well.
We have a civic duty to partake in the fight against crime. Police are only part of the solution. Let's all do our civic duty and turn these criminals in before other children become stories on the evening news.
