Nickelodeon Sees E-Learning Success as Employees Mentor Aspiring Animators

May 7, 2020 12:00 PM ET

Nickelodeon and Burbank High School's Animation Partnership is proudly in its 8th year pairing students with our industry professionals. And thanks to a few key players, we’ve been proudly pushing on from home! BHS Animation teacher Jonelle Pickett got her hands on enough tablets for her students to finish their films, Adobe offered up its Creative Cloud to students at no cost, and Eric Swanborg, our own VP of Animation Technology partnered with ToonBoom Animation to offer students 20 free Harmony licenses. With these resources now available to them, students are continuing in their projects side by side with virtual mentorship from our studio volunteers!

This year's mentorship program will culminate on Monday, May 18 with the 8th annual BASH Screening—a short films festival that highlights work created during the year-long partnership.
