News: Dates and details for Rigging Dojo 2012 sessions.
For 2012 we are improving a few things and have some exciting changes! First be aware we are limiting the enrollment and session number this year for our full mentored courses.
Mentored Session Dates:
Session 1: March 5th through April 16th – Full, Welcome back returning students, we are happy to have so many of you back for more training in 2012!
Session 2: May 28th to July 6th – Open to qualifying applicants that have preregistered. Space is still limited since Alumni and existing preregistered applicants get first choice but we currently have spots available.
Session 3: August 6th to September 14th – Open to qualifying applicants that have preregistered. Space is still limited since Alumni and existing preregistered applicants get first choice but we still have space.
New for this year is an expansion of our training options to include a series of guest workshops and seminars on a variety of subjects. They will cover VFX, Specialty Rigging topics like props and monsters and a Tech Art Core series for students that are not yet ready for Mentored sessions. We will have more details on new instructors, specific classes, pricing and availability once we have them finalized.
We continuity work to improve our process for training and are working hard to cultivate a learning network that supports our students and Alumni. To foster this growth we will be for the first time ever allow in qualified applicants in to the education site regardless of session start date so they can get more from their time training with us and be part of the community early on.
We have had very successful pilot programs like Train the Trainers. Train the Trainers allows us to work with traditional colleges and universities to improve their animation, game design and media programs while we train and support their educators, instructors and curriculum developers . We are continuing to open this up to more schools and offer graduate portfolio reviews and job preparation for students of those schools for much lower cost than our professional 6 week mentored sessions. Students and faculty get in touch with us to improve your education experience today.
