Ravensbourne Uni kick starts Virtual Production training with Mo-Sys Academy. The Academy team has established strong links with leading universities with the aim of transferring the company’s unrivalled knowledge of Virtual Production. This commitment supports the development of Virtual Production course modules, strengthening the quality of education universities can provide and ensuring students receive vital hands-on training which builds confidence as they prepare for exciting careers in Virtual Production.
Ravensbourne is an innovative, industry-focused university with a reputation for producing highly employable graduates. The collaboration with Mo-Sys promotes the creation of a seamless link between education and the wider creative industry.
Ravensbourne University students, along with their practitioner teachers, were invited to Mo-Sys Academy for an access-all-areas, intensive introduction to Virtual Production (VP). Split over 2-days, Cinematography and Games Design students were introduced to the very latest VP technology. Working in small groups, students and teachers had the opportunity to learn from Mo-Sys’ talented on-set technicians.
Alex Boutellier, Senior Lecturer in Cinematography at Ravensbourne University London commented: “As an educator and practitioner, I found the Mo-Sys Academy to be a brilliantly compact introduction to Virtual Production. It also helped my students understand the technology and terminology of VP, as well as the skills requirements for the new job roles.”
Juliette Thymi, VP Technician and Head of Mo-Sys Academy added: “Ensuring students leave with the Virtual Production skills the industry so desperately needs – now and in the future – is at the heart of our programmes. Ravensbourne is among the education institutions that are proactively driving skills development and fulfilling the huge demand for Virtual Production learning. We are proud to support Alex and his colleagues in their work and look forward to the next opportunity.”
Mo-Sys is expanding its support of universities and will continue to offer these complimentary introduction sessions as part of its wider commitment to academic collaboration.
Since its inception the Mo-Sys Academy has gone from strength to strength, empowering students with Virtual Production knowledge which they are leveraging to maximise their career opportunities.
The Academy team have released additional course dates throughout summer 2022 and will soon announce a programme to be held at Mo-Sys’ Los Angeles Refinery.
