ROBOTICS ENGINEERING GROUP TEAMS UP WITH VISUAL EFFECTS SCHOOL IN ORLANDO
The FIRST Robotics Competition (the FRC), an international competition for high school students, partnered with the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School (the DAVE School) to host an advanced training event for students.
“Where you focus on making real THINGS, we focus on making things look REAL,” introductory words spoken at the Lockheed Martin sponsored FRC event.
The event was held on September 28, 2012 at the DAVE School, located in a soundstage on Universal Orlando property. Nearly 30 students were hand-selected as outstanding members of the FRC to participate.
Throughout the day, FRC participants leveraged workstations available to students at the DAVE School to train with a software called CREO. CREO is an exclusive 3-D modeling software utilized by the professional engineering industry.
Not only did the FRC students gain real-world knowledge of a professionally-used software, they also benefited from the hands-on experience of using the DAVE School’s advanced computer infrastructure. Each student followed along as the Minnesota-based instructor guided the CREO session via webcast.
It is this kind of technological savvy that sets the DAVE School apart from others. “They were blown away by the facility.” said Saham Ali, Director of Information Technology at the DAVE School, speaking of the day-long partnership with the FRC.
Overall the entire event was a complete success thanks to the synergy between an engineering-based organization and the technologically advanced visual effects-based DAVE school – a symbiotic relationship which hopefully shall foster the continual integration of collaborative minds and organizations alike. A Congratulation is to be sent out to all involved for the successful session.
Anthony Danies, who played the role of C-3PO in all six Star Wars films, will be at the DAVE School on Tuesday, August 28th for a special lecture. Anthony will be discussing his role in the films, his views on digital filmmaking, and the amazing work that was done on the school's latest film, "Star Wars Droids: The Jawa Adventure."
Space for this very special event is limited. If you'd like to attend, please contact Jodi at 407-224-3283 to RSVP.
The Digital Animation and Visual Effects School is proud to be showcasing their latest film, "Star Wars Droids: The Jawa Adventure" at this year's Star Wars Celebration. If you're attending the convention, come by our booth, say hi, and view the film in its native 3D format! We're giving away exclusive Star Wars Droids t-shirts and posters at the convention, so be sure to grab one. They're free while supplies last!
