STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A University of Connecticut program set to begin this summer is intended to boost the state's digital media industry.

Digital Media CT seeks to attract individuals with a demonstrated interest in digital media and want to develop the basic skills for entry-level work. Candidates who are encouraged to apply include high school seniors, college students and graduates with majors in communications, film or television.

The monthlong program, which is available at UConn's Stamford campus, will offer four tracks of study, including 3D animation in cinema4D, game design, motion graphics design and web design.

George Norfleet, director of the Office of Film, Television and Digital Media at the state Department of Economic and Community Development, said the training program provides another incentive for industry players establishing, expanding or relocating in Connecticut.
