Ad agency Deutsch has partnered with Film2Future (F2F) to host a two-week intensive programme on animation in Deutsch’s new 48,000 square-foot production studio, Steelhead from June 12 to 23.
As many as twenty-five students will participate in the programme which is slated to run from June 12 through June 23.
The students will gain hands-on animation experience working with Deutsch specialists and industry experts on state-of-the-art equipment. By the end of the program, each participant will have built a portfolio of work for their own academic and professional use.
Deutsch is a non-profit organization that provides an onramp for underprivileged diverse high school students into the film and creative industries.
“This is a great chance to expose kids to all of the opportunities Hollywood has to offer,” says Steelhead president Vic Palumbo.
“Many of these students don’t have the option to attend a four-year college, so it is our goal to prepare them for the really interesting careers in entertainment that don’t require higher education. We’re excited to mentor the Film2Future students and explore the talents of the next generation of creatives in film and entertainment,” he added.
Launched in 2016, F2F gave 19 students across the Los Angeles Unified School District the opportunity to learn about the film industry through an intense film production workshop.
