A new trend?

Animal Logic just announced a partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to start the UTS Animal Logic Academy. Personally I think it’s a great idea, but also part of a wider trend for VFX studios to help training institutions tailor their curriculum to what is required for a production environment. It’s also, frankly, a neat way to plan for potential employees. And there are other examples of VFX studios doing this, RSP has a relationship with UniSA, too, and perhaps so do plenty of UK VFX shops with institutions there. Check out the video embedded above for more on the Animal Logic move.
