Celebrating Highwood's Communication Technology Students and their Provincial Skills Awards from the past 5 Years!
Our students have worked very hard in class and at Provincial Skills over the years, and in all cases each team had to learn new software that they had never used before! Currently competing in 3D Animation, Highwood offers instruction in the industry leading 3D animation software Autodesk Maya.
Students are able to download a free copy of this powerful software for use at home in addition to the instruction they receive at the school during our animation sections. To get your student copy of Autodesk Maya simply visit http://students.autodesk.com and setup your account today!
Autodesk Maya has been used in many Hollywood movies and famous video games. For example, have you heard of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings? How about Shrek or Despicable Me? It has also been used in many video games, such as the Call of Duty series and more!
Even if animation or video game design isn't part of your career plans, you will get to experience and explore many powerful software packages in Communications Technology. In addition to 3D animation, we also explore audio, video, and digital imaging! It's basically Digital Art and expression! How cool is that!
And the best news? No experience required!
It's always a great day to explore technology at Highwood!
