Hey, folks! Are you interested in animation? How about game development? PRODUCTION, YOU SAY? Welllll, I have some good news! Turns out we have some awesome things coming up with Full Sail University in the next few months and I wanted to give y’all a little update!
First up, we're excited to be heading out to Full Sail's 10th annual Hall of Fame Week. Our all-star recruiter Brooke will kick things off at their recruiting event on May 20, and then Jordan Cwierz (@Jordan), Chris Kokkinos (@ChrisKO), and I will be in attendance from May 22 - 23 for a Rooster Teeth panel, a livestream, a meet and greet event and checking out as many Hall of Fame events as we can. I'll also have the honor of giving a keynote speech on May 23, AND I’M DEFINITELY NOT NERVOUS ABOUT IT AT ALL.
You may not know this, but we have a lot of Full Sail alums on staff at Rooster Teeth, so it's kinda wild to think I may end up speaking to some future members of our team. We hope it's going to be a good time and we're excited to check out all of the other activities and panels going on, too!
After that undoubtedly awesome event, Full Sail will be bringing you an extra special episode of RTAA that discusses the animation process launching at RTX this year!
We’re also working with Full Sail to bring you some collaborative podcasts and livestreams on animation. First, we're teaming up for a series of RT Podcast segments with animators and Full Sail alums who will talk about the animation process with Gus. These episodes will air live on May 20, June 3, June 17, and July 8. Meanwhile, we'll also be hosting livestreams on the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel to talk about the whole animation process and answer questions from both our online community and Full Sail students in the classroom. The first of these livestreams will take place at Full Sail University during the Hall of Fame Week on May 22 at 4:00 p.m. CT, and then the rest will be at Rooster Teeth. We’ll keep you posted on specific details as those dates get closer.
And last but definitely not least, Full Sail will have a booth at this year’s RTX (July 5 – 7) and hosting three Introduction to Animation sessions that weekend plus hosting mini-workshops in their booth with our attendees and share more about what they offer through the university, both on campus and online. It’s the perfect opportunity for anyone considering this kind of career field to ask questions and learn more about the types of educational programs that are out there.
Soooo YEAH, there's lots of really great stuff happening with this partnership and we're excited to be teamed up with an institution that does so much to further the art of animation. We'd love to meet Rooster Teeth fans and Full Sail students at the events, but if you can't be there in person, be sure to check out the RT Podcast episodes and get your questions ready for the livestreams!
