3D is going academic.
The Intl. 3D Society and USC’s Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) have teamed to start a 3D University for 3D pros.
The courses will focus on 3D theory, processes and applications. Subjects to be covered include basic capture and stereographic concepts, shooting sporting and live events, budgeting and workflow.
The series is designed as an immersive education and training program and will be offered free to members of the Intl. 3D Society and sponsors of ETC.
“There are now far too few individuals who understand the art and nuance of making great 3D,” said ETC topper David Wertheimer. “This series is a tangible leap towards broadening that foundational knowledge throughout the cinema, television, and live-events industries.”
Instructors will include such 3D experts as Phil McNally, DreamWorks Animation; Bruce Dobrin, Sony 3D Technology Center; Steve Schklair, 3ality Digital; John Nicolard, FotoKem ; and Phil Lelyveld, USC ETC.
First class is skedded for July 17 at Walt Disney Studios.
