MCAP Looking for Student Animators

The good news is that MCAP01 is rapidly approaching the end of production. The bad news is that we truly need new student animators. Why? Well, many of our shining lights will shortly be graduating, moving on to the next phase in their careers. And we need to replace them to maintain our momentum.

So, if you are interested in being part of something massive, drop us (or me, a line and we’ll see where your talents can be best utilized.

Nuff said!

SIGGRAPH 2018 Here We Come!

The annual SIGGRAPH conference is rapidly approaching, and MCAP will have a presence at the conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada, August 12 thru 16, via multiply venues.

First, we will once again be sponsoring a Birds-of-a-Feather session on Monday, August 13, from 10:30am to 12pm. During this session you can discover not only what we’ve accomplished so far, but more importantly our plans for the future. And we’re always looking for more students, faculty and schools to join us.

Next, MCAP will be presenting a Talk on Tuesday, August 13, in a Educators’ Forum session from 3:45 to 5:15pm. Here we will present how MCAP started and how it is managed. And, very importantly, how it can affect your curricula design pedagogically.

Lastly, the Steering Committee is tickled pink with the fact that our student Project Managers were able to have a poster submission accepted. Poster sessions are from 12:15 to 1:15pm, Monday thru Wednesday, during which you can visit their poster and talk with them about their work.

Bottom line, MCAP is GROWING, but we’re nowhere near the size we want to be. We need students and faculty for ALL aspects of an animation production pipeline. We have two projects underway, and a third will have its kick-off at Vancouver.

So join us, and be part of something massive!

Yale University’s Center for Collaborative Arts & Media

The Center for Collaborative Arts & Media at Yale University (New Haven, CT, USA) is wrapping up a major renovation and rebranding project. Students from Yale, under the guidance of Professor Johannes DeYoung, have made a major impact on the progress of MCAP Project No. 1. The animatic they put together shows just how much undergraduate students are truly capable of.

Hail & Well Met!

Welcome to the Massive Collaborative Animation Projects (aka MCAP) website!

MCAP is an on-going initiative to bring undergraduate students worldwide together to create short computer animations. By offering a framework for the creation of computer animations, students can utilize their talents far beyond their respective curricula. They can be part of something massive!
