Academy Sci-Tech Council Launches Internship Program

Beverly Hills, CA (rushprnews) June 27, 2007— The Science and Technology Council of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has launched a summer internship program designed to provide real-world experience to students interested in careers in computer graphics and animation technology.

Pixar Animation Studios, Rhythm & Hues Studios and Sony Pictures Imageworks will each provide an eight-week internship that gives students hands-on opportunities in animation, production management, software programming and visual effects. The Sci-Tech Council will provide a stipend of $4,000 to each student.
“This groundbreaking program is designed to develop the next generation of technologists and digital artists. Each of the host studios will provide an intensive program that exposes the intern to the exceptional talent and cutting-edge technology at the company,” said Barry Weiss, the Sci-Tech Council’s internship program chair.

The 2007 Science and Technology Council interns are:
Blake Johnson, Brigham Young University – Pixar Animation Studios
Ben Beech, Ringling College of Art and Design – Sony Pictures Imageworks
Max Abrahams, Brown University – Rhythm & Hues Studios
The Imageworks Professional Academic Excellence (IPAX) program, which involves a consortium of colleges and universities offering digital technology curricula, supports the internship program by acting in a coordinating capacity among the studios, schools and interns.
Established in 2003 by the Academy's Board of Governors, the Science and Technology Council provides a forum for the exchange of information, promotes cooperation among diverse technological interests within the industry, sponsors publications, fosters educational activities and preserves the history of science and technology of motion pictures.
