3D Graphics and Animation Camp Underway

Posted on: July 16, 2013

Now into week three of the Telecommunication, Information Studies and Media

(TISM) Media Summer Camps, high school students are engaged in the 3D Graphics and Animation Camp right now.

The camps, held in the Communication Arts & Sciences building, include five full days of hands-on instruction by MSU faculty and staff, and for the first time, an overnight option is available.

All of the MSU Media Camps have limited enrollment. The maximum capacity of each camp is 20 students, because the department wants to maintain a high faculty-to-student ratio.

3D Graphics and Animation Camp is a new program, introduced last summer, and has been met with great enthusiasm,” notes Amanda Krueger, TISM outreach specialist.

Throughout the week, students will model 3D objects and then animate them. They’ll learn the process, tasks and roles involved in 3D graphics and animation from both a film and video game perspective.

At the camp, students will be introduced to Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop industry software by Andrew Dennis, the camp’s lead instructor.

Dennis, who has been teaching camps since 2011, said his favorite part is seeing the final projects that the students develop.

“Seeing how far they get is just inspiring,” Dennis said. “I love seeing the students as they excitedly show their parents what they have learned and made on their own.”
