GoPro Expands University Program with NYU, UCLA (Exclusive)

GoPro is helping more students tell their stories. The company announced Tuesday that NYU Tisch School of the Arts and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television will join its university program alongside USC.  The program launched in October with USC as a flagship partner.

GoPro provided NYU and UCLA TFT students with camera and accessories, as well as guided workshops, education and one-on-on mentorship. Students are encouraged to participate in GoPro Awards, an ongoing program that rewards community members for sharing GoPro photos, raw video clips and edited clips. Some photos and videos are included in GoPro Channel programming and licensing, and students have the opportunity to receive monetary rewards through the program.

“As we celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary, our partnership with GoPro allows our scholars, musicians, actors, designers, writers, filmmakers, coders, photographers, and animators to incorporate new technology in wonderfully creative and diverse ways,” Dean of the Tisch School of the Arts Allyson Green said in a statement. “Fifty years ago, our school was heralded as a daring adventure, and innovative tools like GoPros help ensure that the spirit of adventure continues, inspiring both students and faculty to push the boundaries in the arts.”

“We’re excited to welcome GoPro to the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Our students are some of the most artistic and talented anywhere, and it’s important for us to find new ways to make their stories and experiences even more exceptional and varied,” Dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television Teri Schwartz said in a statement. “We are confident this partnership will help to make our students’ most enchanting ideas and stories a reality.”

Check out the most recent GoPro Awards winning video, “The Magician.”
