An exciting opportunity that may be of interest to some of you in advancing and testing your skills in 3D modelling and animation. This year, Creative Skillset is funding 3Dami Studios’ Summer School and in addition 3Dami are offering full bursaries to BOA students to attend, including transport to the summer school in London or Cardiff, accommodation and food during their stay.

Open to those aged 14-18, the summer school is an intensive 7-day residential programme where young people can rapidly develop their skills and put their learning to the test in a great atmosphere. 3Dami students will work in a team to form miniature digital studios, and think on their feet to script, model and animate a 2 minute short film in Blender before its premiere at the end of the week. It’s an action-packed week with inspiration, training and all the help participants need to create their film, including feedback from onsite games, film and visual effects experts and a visit to a creative studio.

The summer school runs at University College London on Wed 22nd -Thu 30th July and at Cardiff University on Wed 29th July-Thu 6th August 2015.

To apply, students should visit the 3Dami website and submit a short portfolio of your work along with a commitment to attend.
