Goal

The goal is to fund a motion capture suit for the purposes of educating students on 3D Gaming, 3D Animation, and Visual Effects. The students this technology will benefit are part of an entertainment arts academy in our district, with a passion for gaming and animation. This tech will help bolster their understanding of the medium and further their interest in pursuing a career in the industry.  

 

What will be done with my students

This tech will be permanently integrated into both the animation and gaming courses offered in our academy. The students will use this tech regularly when producing any 2D or 3D game or animation. A motion capture suit records the movements of a person wearing the suit, providing data to animate digital character models in 2D and 3D applications. This tech has become industry standard and we would like our students to have experience working with this technology in the production of their own games and animated films. 

 

Benefits to my students

All of our students currently have to work around not having this technology. Having a motion capture system is a natural evolution in the student's understanding of the medium we teach them. The quality of the student's work and the speed at which they can work, would dramatically increase. This will make students more excited about their work and feel confident about pursuing a career in this tech-heavy field.  

 

Describe the Students

All of the students in the gaming and animation classes are application students at The Academy of Entertainment Arts (AEA), so they are coming to us with a strong interest in the fields we teach.  

 

Budget Narrative

This tech is a one-time purchase and does not require any additional supplies or subscriptions.
