The ACME Network, is a non-profit online educational community that uses its website and videoconferencing technology to connect creative professionals from the entertainment industry with middle school, high school, and college classrooms for mentorship in 21st century creative and critical skills. ACME’s unique practice is defined by our “pay it forward” approach to mentoring. Students actively participate in offering constructive feedback to their peers in order to earn access to professional mentors on our website and over on-air telecast real time videoconferencing and via our online mentoring platform. The V3 beta platform went live on 10/3/2011 and connects students, professional mentors and educators.This is now made easier. ACME and Bill Haller from Sony will present The ACME Network tools and discuss animation and mentoring.
