Full Sail Real World Education has announced “Project LaunchBox,” a first-of-its-kind campus-wide program that enables Full Sail students with powerful Apple technology to create music, film, games, animation and design.
Project LaunchBox complements Full Sail’s programs across six different disciplines by providing students with a complete mobile studio comprising of a MacBook Pro notebook computer loaded with powerful software such as Apple’s Final Cut Studio video production suite.
“Apple has proven over time to be a pioneer and a leader in the creative industries, making its products and solutions the obvious choice for Full Sail,” said Garry Jones, President of Full Sail, in the press release. “With a MacBook Pro and powerful software such as Final Cut Studio, Project LaunchBox enables students to express unique stories digitally without limits.”
“Full Sail is one of the country’s most creative and technically savvy colleges,” said John Couch, Apple’s Vice President of Education, in the press release. “We are thrilled to work with Full Sail on this exciting new adventure for the school’s students and faculty and can’t wait to see the creative products they produce.”
Full Sail selected Apple’s MacBook Pro because it provides desktop performance in a thin sleek notebook design, making it ideal for intensive creative tasks involving graphics, video editing and music encoding that are the lifeblood for students interested in pursuing careers in the entertainment industry.
With Project LaunchBox, students have access to Apple’s complete line of creative software tools that address the needs of beginners and advanced professionals alike: iLife, Apple’s award-winning suite of digital applications that includes iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, GarageBand and iWeb; and iWork, Apple’s productivity suite that enables cinema-quality presentations. The customized sets of pro-level applications include software packages such as Apple’s Logic Pro 7 for music and audio creation and Final Cut Studio for real-time video and motion-graphics production. With this combination, Full Sail students will now have uninterrupted access to the software applications they need and can have their portfolio available at their fingertips.
“Project LaunchBox is an exciting opportunity to use the creative industry’s leading tools,” said Full Sail student Andrew Michell, in the press release. “MacBook Pro and Final Cut Studio will help me to become an industry professional.”
