3Dami is an organisation founded to promote digital art amongst pre-university (11-18 year old) students, by linking them with each other and industry. It runs for seven days in the summer, 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 premiere. As they start from scratch they have to use computational thinking and teamwork to complete the many challenges of filmmaking. 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.
