Every year, the UR Media Career Pathways program recruits aspiring designers, filmmakers and animators to join an intensive Digital Media program to learn how to become a professional freelance artists and entrepreneurs.
Covering every aspect of production including: screenwriting, cinematography and editing, students are paired with industry professionals and provided scholarship opportunities to fund their own creative projects.
Students are provided stipends for each session, and provided lab time and office space to meet with clients, and develop their portfolios.
