MONTREAL, Dec. 19, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The "Golden Eagle Snatches Kid" video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by
Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault, Antoine Seigle and Félix
Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation
workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital
The video shows a royal eagle snatching a young kid while he plays under
the watch of his dad. The eagle then drops the kid a few feet away.
Both the eagle and the kid were created in 3D animation and integrated
in to the film afterwards.
The video has already received more than 1,200,000 views on YouTube and
has been mentioned by dozens of media in Canada and abroad.
The production simulation workshop class, offered in fifth semester,
aims to produce creative projects according to industry production and
quality standards while developing team work skills. Hoaxes produced in
this class have already garnered attention, amongst others a video of a penguin having escaped the Montreal Biodôme.
About Centre NAD's 3D animation and digital design bachelor degree
Created in the Fall of 2010 in association with UQAC, Centre NAD's 3D
animation and digital design bachelor degree is primarily aimed at
students finishing their CEGEP or university studies in the field of
visual arts and at people who hold relevant experience in visual arts.
It is a solid professional training program that allows students to
master the theoretical and practical bases of 3D creation in today's
world. During their training, students must choose one of two
concentrations: visual effects for cinema and television or video
games. The three-year program (90 credits) thus aims to answer the
industry's needs. More and more, it requires qualified manpower at the
cutting edge of technology and creative innovation with both technical
and artistic skills.
