THE MISSION: To give diverse high-school students hands-on exposure and experience in creating content in a real world setting.
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? Students were to create character concepts for a hero, villain, and a compelling backstory between the two.
HOW DID IT WORK? We had a group of industry expert “coaches” split up to guide and mentor the teams on their projects and assist them with creating their projects. Students from South East High School, Compton Early College High School, West Adams Preparatory High School, USC Arts & Engineering Magnet, LA Promise Fund Charter School, Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, and Grand Arts High School attended.
WHEN WAS IT? Saturday September 7th, 2019 through Sunday September 8th, 2019 at LightBox Expo at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA.
