Toon Boom products provide students with the unique opportunity to work within one integrated animation production pipeline similar to the system adopted by the leading animation studios. As Toon Boom technology is completely transparent throughout the production process, students can enjoy total creative freedom while storyboarding, drawing, scanning, inking and painting, lip synching, laying out animation in a 3D space, and adding stunning special effects.
As of September 2007, students will start learning animation using Toon Boom’s advanced technology in their first year and will do so throughout the four-year B.A. and three-year M.F.A curricula. Catering to the leading animation studios in California, Toon Boom and the School of Cinematic Arts combine both their technology and industry knowledge for the immediate benefit of the students.
"Animation and digital arts are a fundamental part of the cinematic process in which we take our dreams and visions and bring them to life,” said SCA Dean Elizabeth M. Daley. “Thanks to Toon Boom, our students have a powerful tool that can let them focus on the vision without getting bogged down in the process.”
"Having such a prestigious school as USC School of Cinematic Arts on board is an honor. It is an additional testimony of Toon Boom’s commitment to deliver industry-standard animation software solutions while playing a proactive role in the educational arena," stated Joan Vogelesang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom Animation.
