3Dami is an organisation founded to promote digital art amongst pre-university students, by linking them with each other and industry. It runs seven day summer schools (14-18 year old), getting groups of nine students to run their own studios, and make their own short 3D animated film using Blender. They experience every part of production, from scriptwriting through to première. 3Dami also produces a 6 week school scheme of work (11-18 year old) based on the English Computing curriculum. Both projects place computational thinking at their core, as well as encouraging teamwork to complete the many challenges of film making. Find out more about the 2014 studio here.
3Dami has been recognised as one of the few examples of an event that “genuinely combine[s] creative and digital learning”.
3Dami has been running since 2012, with support from universities, charities and the digital arts industry.
