The Photoshop camp runs from July 11 through July 15. Why learn Photoshop? Simply put, Adobe Photoshop is absolutely essential to anyone working in the media arts industry. In fact, U.S. News lists Photoshop and the Adobe Creative Suite as one of five skills everyone should be able to list on their resume, whether they’re in the media arts field or not. 3D animators, filmmakers, photographers, and web designers all need to master Photoshop.
In this one week course you’ll learn color correction, compositing, image retouching, photo manipulation, and special effects. Don’t miss this chance to become proficient with Adobe Photoshop.
The 3D Modeling camp runs from July 25 through July 29. 3D Modeling is an excellent choice for anyone interested in pursuing media arts, and even many who aren’t; people who seek out careers in animation, architectural design, broadcast work, corporate communications, game design, illustration, industrial design, information design careers, interior design, motion graphics, multimedia work, pre-production work, product design, and special effects all need to master 3D modeling.
In this one week camp you’ll learn how to use Pixologic Zbrush to sculpt and texture a character of your own. You’ll also learn common techniques in use by professionals in the industry, including DynaMesh, Polygroups, Sculpting Brushes, Subtools, UV Master, ZappLink, and Zremesher.
The Digital Filmmaking camp runs from August 1 through August 5. Filmmaking is more accessible than ever before thanks to the digital revolution—but that doesn’t mean that there’s not an art and science to creating great films. In this camp students will learn how to use Adobe tools and industry standard gear to create professional-quality video.
The course covers each step of digital filmmaking, including color correction with Adobe Speed Grade, DSLR camera operation, editing with Adobe Premiere, film crew operations, pre-production planning, and three-point lighting.
