I was honored to speak at NYFA’s recent event at Flower City Arts Center this weekend to promote NYFA’s programming for artists and to let them know how much support is available to them. After arriving here from Brooklyn two years ago, I have been impressed with spirit of artists in this city, and look forward to spreading the word that NYFA is a resource they should be utilizing!
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!
