The IPAX program provides educators with unique opportunities to engage with today's dynamic production environment. Through interaction with Imageworks' and Sony Pictures Animation's senior executives and artists, access to Imageworks' in-house training program and open learning platform, and faculty fellowships that provide hands-on, real world production experience, educators can bring valuable production knowledge and skills back to their programs. IPAX is also a resource for educators to provide students with learning opportunities and further encourage their development with scholarships and internships.
Faculty fellowshiplearn more >
Imageworks offers a four to eight week Faculty Fellowship Program in which a faculty member is placed on a current production and experiences everything from new hire orientation and training to the rigors of actual production on visual effects driven or animated feature films. Faculty members shadow production team members, experiencing the daily roles of the visual effects and animation production crew from top to bottom. Fellows attend meetings, dailies and artist shot reviews. The immersion gives faculty members a greater understanding of all that goes into the digital production process. IPAX Fellowships are unpaid and available to full-time college or university faculty teaching accredited courses directly related to animation, visual effects or technology.
