DreamWorks Animation has once again partnered with SJSU Animation/Illustration to launch a new educational initiative. Through “DreamCrits,” professionals critique student work.
“Professional intervention is crucial for student success,” said Professor Courtney Granner, who coordinates the initiative. “We are very grateful to Marilyn Friedman, DreamWorks head of outreach, as well as Outreach Supervisor Tiffany Feeney for making this unique program a reality.”
Students submit portfolios or reels for consideration, and if their work is selected they are invited to attend and participate in the DreamCrit.
Four to five CSU campuses participate in each event, which are held several times each semester. Fullerton students met at the Glendale studio, and San Jose State and San Francisco State students met at the DreamWorks Animation studio in Redwood City. The two studios are joined by a streaming video wall, providing a life-size, real-time experience.
