In September, Dwarf Labs (also Dwarf Animation Studio) will establish a new in-house training department called Dwarf Academy, under the direction of Pixar and DreamWorks vet Minhyung Lee as head of training. The Academy’s mission will be to keep the studio’s professionals sharp and develop the next generation of recruits.
The curriculum will be geared toward high-end CG careers in the entertainment industry, with each student being mentored by a pro from Dwarf using real-world, deadline-driven examples. Since the training is integrated with Dwarf’s production and R&D facilities, students will use a pipeline based on the studio’s using state of the art hardware and the studio’s proprietary software. The best artists and technicians out of the program will be offered a chance to join Dwarf.
