Partnerships for Success: The Graphics, Animation and New Media Canada network and Funcom

A long-time developer of MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games, Funcom partnered with the Graphics, Animation and New Media Canada (GRAND) network to successfully pilot a unique internship opportunity that complements academic training with high quality real-world work experience. Funcom brought 10 students together in the summer of 2012 for a 10-week intensive development project. Mentored by senior designers, the team adapted a creative concept and turned it into a working prototype of a game.
