What – 3D animation summer school
3Dami is a 7 day summer school where groups of students run their own studio and create their own animated short film from scratch. It operates at the intersection of art and technology (computer science), and is well suited to students with an interest in both. Students get to experience a semi-realistic studio setup, and create their film as a real studio would – it requires teamwork, thinking on their feet and hard work. The skills taught are directly related to the film effects and computer game industries, both of which are booming in the UK. There will be an industry visit and talks given by experts. The event is completely free for UK students aged 14-18 (includes free food, transport and accommodation!) and runs at UCL (London) from July 22nd to 30th. Please visit the website (3dami.org) to watch last years films and for further details, including how to apply.
