Short talks, screenings and Q&As... all in
less than an hour. A brilliant way to learn a lot about a very
specific element of the festival and hopefully provide a wider
base to try and learn more about animation in general.

The multimedia animation and design (MAD) academy
was established in Adelaide in 1998. Specialising in training students
in 3D animation for a wide range of industrial and commercial clients,
the MAD Academy is an authorised Autodesk Training Centre and is
busy expanding its range of courses to capitalise on the Autodesk
Groups’ acquisition of Alias Wavefront | Maya.
MAD Academy’s Michael Kerylidis will talk about
the ACTUAL commercial animation environment that students must be
trained for, the skills they will need to join the workforce and
the kind of projects that they will find themselves working on once
they start drawing a paycheck.
