2013 Dates // June 10 - 28th
Have you watched a 3D animated movie and thought that character was really cool? Have you played a video game and wondered how they made that amazingly scary, bad guy character? Have you thought up your own coolest, toughest, wickedest, or sweetest character that anyone could imagine?
Then the EAE Summer Program is where you will get a chance to make your very own 3D animated character.
The University of Utah's School of Computing is pleased to offer the Entertainment Arts and Engineering Summer Program (EAESP) in computer graphics for high school students. EAESP combines theory with practical projects, enabling students to understand computer graphics at a high level. The EAESP will introduce high school students to the concepts of 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, and rendering, using some of the most advanced software in the industry such as Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop.
Working alone and in groups, students will use the University of Utah's School of Computing's latest computing technologies and facilities, and will visit various research laboratories in the School. They also will take fieldtrips to local game and modeling studios. As they work to complete their final projects, they will be guided through the various sequential production pipeline steps necessary to produce high-caliber work. Students will design and create their own 3-D character scratch with their work culminating in a character-based animation short.
The class will be taught by Mark van Langeveld who pioneered this summer program at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 and has been offering it every year since then. Mark graduated in Computer Graphics Design from UCLA and was the first graduate of the Computer Graphics and Game Technology engineering program at the University of Pennsylvania. His passion is to teach computer graphics and he has done so for over seven years at UCLA, San Francisco Academy of Art, and University of Pennsylvania.
9:00am to 4:30pm weekdays
The cost will be $600 / per student which will include course materials, supplies, access to computing facilities, and lunch. Due to limited laboratory space, we will only be able to accept a maximum of 30 students. Note, a few scholarships will be available to those who qualify based on need.
