We start off with Charlie talking about his trip to Savannah, Georgia and SCAD’s art fair. Charlie was impressed with the way the city looks, the boulevards are lined with trees and flowers, the architecture is like New Orleans and the views were great. He attended the student showcase to see the students’ work, review it, critique it and also look for potential new hires.
This is the first year NextNow has attended, looking for talent. Charlie helped run a NextNow booth and he was impressed with preparedness of the students and their interest and passion. AR and VR are huge and up and coming, he was surprised how much interest there was for his booth. SCAD had a great partner program where they pair students or group projects with the major players in the industry like Pixar and Sony and get inside information and feedback from the people in the trenches.
“Savannah is like New Orleans…but clean.” – Charlie on Savannah, Georgia
