The Summer of Unreal is a free, 4-week bootcamp focused on teaching the basics of Unreal Engine animation tools.
This event takes place only once a year.
Through project-based learning sessions and free hands-on work, you’ll get a unique learning package from INCAS Training, the world’s first Unreal Authorized Premier Training Partner.
Developed in partnership with the Unreal Engine Team, Summer of Unreal is aimed at animators and digital content creatives in Europe who want to take their business or career to the next level with real-time animation – a skill that is becoming more important every day.
Seats for attendees are limited. No Unreal Engine knowledge is assumed. We’ll start with the basics and then work our way from setting up a project to using fully animated MetaHuman in the training sessions, hands-on exercises, and your own project work. You will work collaboratively and creatively with artists from all over Europe to find new solutions, learn and develop yourself.
11 Topic-specific half-day training sessions with an exercise component
15 half-day mentoring sessions
8 insightful guest lectures
4 full-day project days
1 half-day final presentation day
The Summer of Unreal campaign is intended for Educators, Trainers, Instructors, Animation Professionals, Freelancers and early career adult Professionals that are currently working with 3D Digital Content Creation (DCC) tools. Unfortunately, students cannot participate.
No experience with UE is required. Participants are expected to be able to demonstrate a solid understanding of contemporary 3D computer graphics software technologies (e.g. Maya, 3ds Max, Houdini, Blender, Cinema 4D, etc.) and standard DCC production workflows. If admitted to the course, we expect attendance for the entire 4 weeks, with a minimum of 80%.
You need a powerful PC and a high-performance internet connection to participate in the Summer of Unreal. Additionally a headset (audio), a webcam (video) and two monitors with (at least) HD resolution.
