3Dami summer school 2016 (London)


The 3Dami Summer school has been hosting successful projects for students for years, and they're getting ready for their next round.

Tom SF Haines writes:

Now in its fourth year, 3Dami brings together small teams of 14-18 year olds to make 3D animated films in seven days with Blender. Each team starts from scratch, and the summer studio ends with a première for each team to show their film. They operate like a real film studio - a director and producer are voted in, one of the scripts written on the first day is selected to become the created film, and then students get to do all of the modelling, materials, rigging, animating, lighting, compositing etc. They do dailies, operate a render farm (we will have 2000 computers!) and make all of the artistic decisions. Here is a supercut of films created at 3Dami:

We always have visitors - in 2015 it was Rare (Goldeneye 007) and a visit to the oscar winning Framestore (Gravity). This year we are in London (UCL), and hoping to host three teams of nine students from Wednesday 3rd August to Thursday 11th August. The event is free to attend, but students have to prove they want to come by submitting a portfolio. We have two deadlines:

  • Wednesday 8th June - We select half the students at this deadline.
  • Wednesday 20th July - We select the second half at this deadline.
