Teaching and learning are two key elements that make a great game development team. Always seeking to learn something new means you will never be left behind. And helping to bring new, talented people into the fold of the gaming, entertainment, and tech industries through education and learning helps to encourage that mindset.
The Magic Media/Ringtail Academy have been working closely together for over a year now. The Academy has incredible support and assistance from GameDev Estonia and quickly established themselves as teachers and educators for those seeking to enter the game’s industry.
With the senior staff of Magic Media and Ringtail Studios and the careful eye of the GameDev Estonia’s founder, Andrejs Rusinvskis, we know it’s been in great hands. The academy began as very art focused and has expanded into VFX and QA, our goal is to continue to grow our offerings until we have a comprehensive educational offering to rival our own service offerings!
We’ve had a seriously productive twelve months! In the first major year of our operations, we’ve had a whopping one-hundred-and-ten students pass through our courses!
That number is significantly larger if you include all the students we’ve had visiting our offices and those we’ve assisted through university lectures. Many of these students passed through directly into industry jobs, having completed a rigorous courseload including “Anatomically Correct Character Modeling”, “3D Animation Basics”, and “Unreal Engine Fundamentals for 3D Artists”.
Some other highlights include:
It’s been a productive and encouraging twelve months. We’ve seen so many students pass through our doors (virtually and physically!) and have welcomed in a staggering amount of those interested in a future career in gaming. We’re excited to continue offering these educational resources and to expand them as we go forward.
