Sony Training Program Takes a Page from Animation Mentor

IPAX, the Sony Pictures Digital Productions professional education program, has just wrapped its first online mentorship program using unique technology from Animation Mentor.

The three-month program uses the online school’s technology to pair professionals from Sony Pictures Imageworks and Sony Pictures Animation with students from 18 IPAX member schools for online training and mentoring.

Online tools included used in the program include live video conferencing for question and answer sessions, video guest lectures and eCritiques with mentors offering video commentary while drawing directly onto students’ work to help make their points.
