Today Adobe announced that 10 major higher education institutions are using Premiere Pro CS5 to expand their video and film programs and better equip students to learn the art of filmmaking. Key innovations in Premiere Pro CS5 like GPU-acceleration with the Mercury Playback Engine and native 64-bit support help address the needs of today’s student filmmaker, including accelerating workflows, increasing productivity and creating media for virtually any screen.
Higher education institutions adopting Premiere Pro CS5 include: The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Ball State University, Chapman University, Vancouver Film School, AFI Conservatory, Sheridan College, Bournemouth University, University College Falmouth and Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam University.
Today Adobe announced the call for entries for the eleventh annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) and introduced new categories — to include faculty and staff. For over a decade the ADAAs have celebrated higher education’s best student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists. This year marks the first time that Adobe and the creative industry will recognize teaching excellence as well as student accomplishment.
Adobe will host the awards ceremony during the International Design Alliance (IDA) Congress in Taipei, Taiwan in October 2011. For the third year in a row Icograda is endorsing and supporting Adobe’s flagship creative competition.
