This summer, leading animation schools in Europe are uniting talents in the mission to create new worlds in Unreal Engine.

Summer of Unreal is a free, four-week boot camp where artists learn practical real-time skills from industry vets. The course is created in collaboration with Epic Games and Escape Studios and backed by five amazing European partners, including our very own Crater Training Center from Belgrade, Serbia.

This is not only the most ambitious free program to date but the largest Unreal Engine training ever attempted. It is designed to bring together 1000 professionals across Europe.

During the course, you will:
Receive 20 days of training—most of it in the morning
Gain insights from European studios
Learn what makes a project successful
Earn exclusive digital badges
Work with artists from across Europe
Learn from industry seniors who can show you how to maximize the way you use Unreal Engine.

Who can apply:
Industry professionals with at least two years of experience working in animation studios or animation projects in any artist role (including Rigging, Layout, Previsualization, Concept Art, Animation, Lighting, and Rendering).
VFX and motion graphics artists, producers, and directors eager to introduce Unreal Engine into their workflows.
Anybody working in the animation industry who is familiar with 3D content creation tools. (Note: Although you need basic knowledge of 3D software, you can be a rookie in Unreal)
