Field trip to Sony Imageworks and VFS

Students from the Design 8 and Senior School IT classes had a chance to see professional animators and special effect artists at work during a recent trip to Sony Pictures Imageworks. Students toured the production studio where many famous films such as Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs, the Spiderman series, and Smurfs were created. Animators discussed with the group about modelling, lighting and basic principles of animation which helped reinforce concepts learned in the unit on 2D computer animation.  
A quick walk to the Vancouver Film School gave students an opportunity to see post-secondary options for further pursuing a career in digital media. Students saw several working studios, from set construction to motion capture filming and green screen technology. Despite the cold and rain, our journey downtown was rewarding to see professional, high quality digital design at work.
