3D Training Institute (3DTi) is launching a new service “Studio Connect” that addresses a major industry problem. Studio Connect, will bridge the gap between graduates who have learned Autodesk 3D software (3dsMax, Maya, Revit, and Inventor) and studios working on film, gaming, architectural, manufacturing, and other design projects, who want high-quality new talent.
With most studios facing stringent production deadlines, they lack the time and resources to train and manage fresh graduates, and prefer to hire experienced talent. Studio Connect is an innovative service that will bridge the gap between students who are trying to enter the 3D field and studios that need skilled talent.
Studio Connect will launch in January 2014, and will be free service for select graduates. The selected participants will have the opportunity to gain the critical experience that studios are seeking, while working in teams on simulated production projects. Graduates will be mentored through practice production projects/pitches. Participants who fulfill the graduation requirements of Studio Connect will be eligible for paid work on actual projects.
The Studio Connect training will be conducted by 3DTraining Institute, in conjunction with distinguished industry professionals from reputable animation studios and architectural/ design firms. Although this service was initially created for graduates who have completed the 3DTi training programs, it will be open to graduates from other schools and colleges as well.
“This program is truly win-win,” says 3DTi Advisory Board Member Gary Sharfin, owner of Private Idaho, a New York-based production/post-production studio who has hired 3DTi graduates for his company. “Graduates participating in Studio Connect will get the opportunity to work with clients, and studios will benefit by having a pool of well-trained and qualified talent for their projects.”
Joel Orr, who helped found Cyon Research Corporation, created Computer Graphics World Magazine, and is a member of 3DTi’s advisory board, had this to say about Studio Connect. “Studio Connect will help bridge the gap in the industry between graduates looking for work and studios looking for well-trained talent that is ready to ‘hit the ground running.’ I encourage studios to take advantage of this service, which will give graduates the break they deserve!”
