American college Full Sail Real World Education has joined NaturalMotion’s fast growing Academic Partner Program.
This partnership ensures that all students enrolled in the institute's Computer Animation Bachelors Degree Program will get increased access to the company's Endorphin, and its other 3D animation tools.
Full Sail is just the latest in a long line of signings to the scheme and is the first US college to sign up - other partners include UK-based Swansea Institute, University of Portsmouth and Bournemouth University.
“We are thrilled to add endorphin to our Computer Animation curriculum,” said Pete Bandstra, Computer Animation Program Director at Full Sail. “Access to NaturalMotion’s award-winning endorphin technology will allow our students to gain valuable, real-world experience using the same tools employed by many of today’s leading animation and visual effects professionals.”
“Full Sail has a reputation for creating first-class graduates and we’re glad we can help contribute first-rate software to the course," added Christian Staack, NaturalMotion’s VP of Sales, North America. “We look forward to seeing what Full Sail’s students are producing with our technology over the coming months and years.”
