The University of Texas at Austin has received a $2.8 million grant from the Moody Foundation for its 3D Production Program.
Specifically, the Department of Radio-Television-Film, directed by associate professor Don Howard, will receive the funds for “UT3D.”
UT-Austin film grad Wayne Miller is now executive producer at SD Entertainment in Los Angeles. Miller will co-chair the program’s advisory council. Tim McClure, GSD&M Advertising co-founder, also helped to launch UT3D. It is said that McClure will work to connect the college with industry partners.
Undergrad classes in 3D production will begin in the fall. The Moody Foundation was founded in Galveston, Texas and makes grants primarily in Austin and Dallas, with an emphasis on education, social services, children’s needs, and community development.
