Develop Award winner Natural Motion wants to inspire students to think about next-generation games development thanks to its Academic Partner Progam which offers animation tools at cut prices to educators.

“Our new Academic Partner Program will give students a competitive edge by introducing them to the same high-end 3D character animation software that is used by many of today’s leading game and production companies,” said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion.

“We’re excited to contribute to the growth and development of the next generation of animators – giving them access to learn the tools required to stay ahead of the curve in this fast-paced industry.”

The Program will offer selected colleges and universities licences to animation tool endorphin for all school PCs that are used for relevant courses, such as computer animation and games technology; early access to select upcoming 3D technology from NaturalMotion; and NaturalMotion technical and supervisory support for select academic projects.

Educational institutions wishing to enroll or find out more information about the Program should contact Rhian Mulcrone at NaturalMotion at +44 (0) 1865 250 575 or via email at contact@naturalmotion.com.
