THE MISSION: To give diverse high-school students hands-on exposure and experience in creating content.

WHAT IS THE BRIC CREATIVE ACADEMY? A two-day intensive project challenge for teams to ideate, develop, and produce new content.  Types of content and topics will vary.

WHAT WAS THE CHALLENGE? The focus was animation and the challenge was to create a 30-60 second animatic about the “Worst Lunchroom Ever.”

HOW DID IT WORK? There were four teams of three students. We had a team of industry expert “coaches” split up to guide and mentor the teams on their projects and assist them with creating their animatics.

WHEN WAS THE FIRST ONE? Saturday December 1, 2018 through Sunday December 2, 2018 at Luma Pictures in Santa Monica, with a follow-up screening and party Tuesday January 8th at their school.

WHAT WAS INCLUDED?  Luma Pictures provided all equipment, materials, meals, and travel to and from the studio for both days of the event. Prizes were provided by Gnomon School of VFX + Animation for Film + Games.
