Paul Mendoza and I teach an animation class at the Academy of Art University in SF, and Tuesday was the last night of class. It's hard teaching animation for just one semester, because you just start getting a sense of everyone's style and you have to kick them out the door.
I'm not worried for our students, though. They were all MASTERS OF ANIMATION by the time we were done with them. I think Dong-Jin (pictured below) was getting a little tired of her nickname, Dong-Jin & Dragons, anyway.
If you're a student and you're looking to get your work out there, submit your film(s) to TR!CKSTER's Student Animation Film Festival. That's right, the creator-centric convention welcomes comic artists and filmmakers alike! So dust off those DVDs and send em in!
While I'm sharing photos, here's my friend Sean Feeley's entry for this year's Redbull Soapbox Derby. If you're in the LA area this weekend, swing by and root for the JP Jeep. They're bound to get major style pts; this baby has some serious rex appeal.
Redbull Soapbox Derby....maybe that's why dinosaurs evolved into birds. Redbull gives you wings, right?
