Singapore Polytechnic on 22 October 2010 signed a Memorandum of Co-operation (MOC) with Monstrou Studio, a production house that is focused on grooming local talents to enter the Animation workforce with the right industry experience.
Staff and Students from Singapore Polytechnic, particularly from the School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology
), will benefit immediately from this partnership which will enable technology transfers, workshops, internships (local and overseas) and hands-on training in industry-specific hardware in their facilities such as the recently acquired motion capture rig.
Singapore Polytechnic and Monstrou Studio have been working together since 2009 where, back then, the relationship was purely internship-based. The Interns at Monstrou Studio were in the thick of production for the locally-owned TV Production, Tritans & Cody Rock. Moving forward, the new Interns currently at Monstrou Studio will have the opportunity to be stationed overseas (Malaysia and China) depending on where the production needs them.
