Pacific Rim is a summer popcorn blockbuster that pits robots against monsters. DMA students got to see the movie last week when overnight campers in Digital Media Academy’s UCLA tech camps were invited to a special premiere preview of the movie in Burbank, California.
Campers got free tickets and promotional items like t-shirts, posters and temporary Pacific Rim—all courtesy of Warner Brothers:
Best Night Ever
According to David Fong, the Resident Coordinator for DMA’s UCLA program, the night was a huge hit, starting with surprises from the studio:
Campers in the special effects and filmmaking camps were blown away by the movie and everyone loved the film. The chance to see it as a DMA VIP was even better!
Making it to the Big Screen
Pacific Rim explodes off the screen with big-budget visual effects. Learning to create Hollywood visual effects is as easy as spending a week with Digital Media Academy this summer. In DMA’s Special Effects Filmmaking camp, teens learn what goes into creating a Hollywood blockbuster like Pacific Rim.
Digital Media Academy partners with companies like Warner Brothers Studios to offer special events to campers at all our camp locations. Events vary by location and availability.
