Since 2015, we’ve supported over 5,000 creative professionals from over 95 different countries, to get paid for what they love. Photographers, art directors, fashion designers, stylists, we’re grateful for the opportunity to support so many talented creatives from so many different disciplines.
Right now, we’re excited about identifying and training the ‘creators of the metaverse’. We’re on the cusp of a generational leap, as profound as the shift from desktops to smartphones, as new technologies like AR, VR, blockchain, and real-time 3D become mainstream. The companies and people harnessing these new tools are creating immersive experiences - literally new worlds - for us to connect, play and work in.
We believe the metaverse offers tremendous possibilities for creators. The job and skills demand will be immense. The potential for meaningful work incredible. The opportunity to ride the next big wave real.
Our bootcamps have been designed to develop the artists and engineers who will build the metaverse. Our mission is to help them secure well-paid, purposeful jobs in immersive companies. In short, we want to shape the talent, who will shape our future world.
We don’t just teach the technical skills that employers need right now. Or connect you with a mentor who can tell you all about the job you want. Or coach you to improve your confidence and raise your ambitions. Or help you find lifelong collaborators. Or keep you on track with your job search. We do all of these things.
We are not in this to help you pass an exam. Everything from how your daily experience will mirror the world of work, to the career coach you’ll work with, to the skills you learn, the tools you use, and the people you collaborate with is geared towards getting a job and setting you up for success from your first day at work onwards.
There really is no end to brilliant free learning content or cheap courses out there. We pick up where these resources end, providing you with the human support to give you feedback, to hold you accountable, to keep you motivated, and to deal with all the difficult human challenges, like low confidence, that comes with changing careers.
There are many career paths and even more learning styles and personal life situations. Our experiences have been designed to take this into account, so you can train from wherever you are in the world, adapt the schedule and set the career path that’s right for you.
We’ve made a career of not fitting in and we’ve made a bootcamp for people who are the same. The world is magnificent in its diversity and industry needs new voices, creators and storytellers, which is why we work hard to open doors to those who have been shut out for too long.
Our focus is your career, not our course.
You can be an artist and an engineer.
Unreasonable commitment is the admissions criteria.
You need skills to survive, and a great mindset to thrive.
Collaboration is the enabler of success.
We are all experts and novices.
Our lives and loves, families and friends, work and well-being have been challenged like never before in recent times. However hard it may seem right now, we believe that from challenge can come growth. Our interest in immersive technology is in its potential to not just help creators find good jobs, but also as a chance to reshape our future at work.
The gig economy is unparalleled freedom for some, and underpaid, precarious work to others. Working in 3D offers opportunities for full-time work, long-term project contracts, short intensive highly lucrative commitments, and everything in-between.
Building the metaverse is ultimately a creative pursuit, whether you're an artist or a programmer. You'll need to devise new stories, imagine new worlds, invent from a blank piece of paper and express your own ideas. The metaverse has almost limitless potential to morph and grow into one of the defining creative platforms of our time.
Game artists are creating new social narratives. Architects are changing how communities interact. Car designers are rethinking how we travel. VR developers are building for empathy. We are blown away by the potential for creators building 3D worlds to create new narratives, for a new world.
We want to ensure that the people creating the new world represent the people that will inhabit it. The future belongs to creators, regardless of their age, gender, geography, family situation, or learning style. Brands, clients and companies are demanding 'newness' and we're sure that diversity and inclusion is the answer.
