I was honored to speak this weekend during the New York Foundation for the Arts’ (NYFA) presentation at Flower City Arts Center to promote NYFA’s programming for artists. After arriving here from Brooklyn two years ago, I have been impressed with spirit of artists in this city, and want them all to know that NYFA houses many resources they could be utilizing!
Felicity Hogan and Judy Cai touched upon many of those resources including:
Spent my third summer teaching the Summer PreCollege Animation Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and these high school students never cease to amaze me! For two weeks we covered the entire production pipeline, from the principles of animation and story creation to storyboarding and animation production. They completed the films below in only five days! An incredible feat by any standard.
Just spent another two weeks in New York City with some fabulously focused and hard-working high school students! I could go on and on about how much they accomplished in five days of production, but their work speaks for itself!
