Piedmont Community College (PCC) student Vincent Norwood has been accepted to work as a technology counselor in the Emagination Game Design Camp this summer. The camp is held at Bentley University in Waltham, Mass. Norwood is a second-year student in PCC’s Digital Effects and Animation Technology (DEAT) program.  

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Vincent,” said Paula Hindman, DEAT instructor. “He got this paid position by applying and then completing a Skype interview after which he was immediately offered the internship. This shows how well our PCC students are prepared to work in digital effects and animation.”  

Norwood will receive training for the Emagination camp and will then assist students in the computer lab in making games.  

PCC’s Digital Effect & Animation Technology program offers a concentrated course of study in animation, post-production, and special effects for games, television, or multi-media. The program is housed on PCC’s Caswell County Campus in Yanceyville and offers students hands-on learning opportunities using the latest animation software.
