Disney-owned Maker Studios and Winter Park, Florida-based Full Sail University have paired up to create a digital entertainment studio.
Rebl HQ is located on the Full Sail University campus and is currently producing short-form on-line videos. The state-of-the-art facility will also offer a curriculum on online video creation.
Content will cover such genres as comedy, gaming, beauty and travel, and students will be offered opportunities to participate on professional productions.
Distribution and development for online video as well a delivery systems, production techniques and storytelling will also be part of the curriculum.
“In addition to the productions that will occur within Rebl HQ, we know we have aligned with the industry leader in short-form content and look forward to the collaboration and educational opportunities that result with Maker,” said Full Sail University president Garry Jones in a statement.
For Maker, it’s the chance to help develop a talent farm system.
“Maker is always looking for new ways to help creative people develop their skills and grow audience to their full potential. We want to empower students with the proper skills to become a successful part of the digital content ecosystem. We’re excited to produce programming with Rebl HQ as well as share our expertise with Full Sail students,” said Maker Studio’s chief content officer Erin McPherson.
