Students from Year Groups 8 and 9 recently enjoyed an extraordinary visit to 'The Mill's', Technicolor Creative Studios to gain first-hand insights into the world of visual effects and animation. The dedicated staff at The Mill graciously devoted their time to conduct engaging interactive sessions, providing students with a comprehensive understanding of the studio's involvement in diverse projects, ranging from short ads and movie production to animation and video games.
The showcase left our students captivated as they witnessed the behind-the-scenes magic of their favourite movies, animations, and beloved computer games being brought to life within the studio. A highlight of the visit was the floor walk, where industry experts meticulously briefed the students on every aspect of creating an animated movie. The students were particularly astounded to discover the immense effort and creativity invested in producing even a brief 5-second advertisement.
This experience proved invaluable for those students aspiring to pursue careers in design, offering them a firsthand glimpse into the dynamic and innovative industry they aspire to be a part of. The Mill's team served as an inspiration, generously sharing their own experiences, providing valuable career advice, and patiently addressing numerous questions posed by our enthusiastic students.
Indeed, this visit provided an incredible industry experience, leaving a lasting impact on our students and fostering their passion for the fascinating world of visual effects and animation.
