In a region where the educational offerings are usually bog standard, there is a jazzy possibility: you can become a professional animator by attending classes at the LSUS Animation and Visual Effects institute (AVEI).

And teens can explore a future in animation by taking the intro classes offered regularly on weekends and during the summer.

In June the Animation and Visual Effects Academy (AVEA) will engage 20 high school participants in hands-on learning using cutting edge technology to create visual and compositing effects that are used in movie making, advertising, cyber visualization programs, and computer gaming, says John Miralles.

Components of the summer program include Desktop Graphics, Film Making Theory, Film Shooting and Editing, and Visual Effects. The program culminates with the debut showing of the student-made film at the Robinson Film Center to an audience of family, friends, and supporters of the program.

June 1 – 25
M - F, 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Technology Center, LSUS campus.
Cost: None. Lunch is provided. Sportran bus passes are provided as needed.
Download the application and mail it in by Ap 12.
Info: Diana Gingles at 797-5331 or 797-5356.
