2 About the ESPN/ Full Sail University Partnership How was the partnership formed? Having successfully utilized Full Sail University students for several on-site productions at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, the university and ESPN s emerging technology team began collaboration discussions. This evolved into the launch of the Full Sail University Sports Lab Powered by ESPN on the university s campus in Winter Park, Florida. Who were the initial stakeholders and how have the stakeholders evolved? Full Sail University and ESPN are the initial stakeholders. This group has expanded to include the students who have the opportunity to gain real world experience by working on material that will be incorporated into ESPN telecasts. Who led the charge? This is a mutual collaboration between both entities. What are the objectives for ESPN? Full Sail? ESPN + Full Sail University career development Full Sail University s Career Development department works as a liaison between Full Sail graduates and employers to facilitate job and internship placements. The relationship between ESPN and Full Sail University has led to careers at ESPN for several graduates due to initial student opportunities, as well as ESPN s outreach to Full Sail in search of qualified graduates. Career Spotlight: Erik McGrew & Jason Black The mission of this joint collaboration is to not only develop new technology enhancements such as virtual applications, but to provide students at Full Sail University the opportunity to work alongside ESPN s emerging technology team to gain real-world experience. Students who are selected to work in the lab will have the ability to design and execute new studio and remote technologies for ESPN. They will also get the opportunity to work along ESPN production personnel on large-scale shoots and the taping of shows. How have they been fulfilled? Dozens of Full Sail students spanning several degree programs including: Film, Game Development, Show Production, Digital Arts & Design and Computer Animation have been able to assist on projects including the production of the College Football Gameday opening sequence, which was shot on the Hollywood-style backlot located on Full Sail s campus, and BCS virtual interstitials and features. In addition, several students have been able to become ESPN employees based on their work at the Full Sail University Sports Lab Powered by ESPN. Recently the Sports Lab held a shoot for a 2012 Bowl Championship Series (BCS) virtual preview. The segment is part of ESPN s popular College GameDay show, and featured host Desmond Howard providing a rundown of the upcoming game, as well as a recap of past highlights. The production ran for five days, and was developed with the help of Computer Animation graduate Jason Black and Digital Arts & Design graduate Erik McGrew, who are concept developers for the network. Jason and Erik got hired in the summer of 2011 specifically to learn Brainstorm, a proprietary software program that allows manipulation of live game footage. They were tipped to the opportunity by Full Sail s Career Development department when the network came looking for ideal candidates. After an intense two-week training period, they joined the College Gameday team, and spent this year s season traveling the country to featured games, where they handle the camera-tracking and program virtual graphics into shots during a live show.
