GoPro, Inc. today announced NYU Tisch School of the Arts and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT) have joined its university program, announced in October, live at USC. As part of the program, GoPro provided NYU and UCLA TFT students with cameras and accessories to create their own engaging content. GoPro will also provide guided workshops, education and one-on-one mentorship at the schools.
"As we celebrate the school's 50th anniversary, our partnership with GoPro allows our scholars, musicians, actors, designers, writers, filmmakers, coders, photographers, and animators to incorporate new technology in wonderfully creative and diverse ways," saidAllyson Green, dean of the Tisch School of the Arts. "Fifty years ago, our school was heralded as a daring adventure, and innovative tools like GoPros help ensure that the spirit of adventure continues, inspiring both students and faculty to push the boundaries in the arts."
Students are encouraged to participate in GoPro Awards, GoPro's always-on content platform that rewards the creative community for capturing and sharing their best GoPro photos, raw video clips and video edits. Selected photos and videos are eligible for inclusion in GoPro Channel programming, licensing and more, and students will also be eligible to receive monetary rewards through the program. Announced in October, GoPro Awards continues to attract thousands of new submissions weekly.
Tisch and GoPro plan to showcase the student content early next year.
