Educational award winning workshop series which provides high school students with the opportunity to learn about various social issues (such as water conservation, youth violence, and voting) and then work with a filmmaker-mentor on creating inspirational PSAs that express their views on those issues.
As of today we have produce more than 10 programs, combining more than 40 PSA’s, working with High School, Universities, Museums, City’s and community councils.
Drinking & Drawing
Participate in the creation of a film in just one night!
A jam where animators and fans get together to draw and mingle. Groups of animators are called up 10 at a time and each animator receives eight blank note cards, as well as the last card drawn by the animator before them. They have exactly 10 minutes to finish their eight frames. It ends up being a fast-paced musical chairs method of doing an animation. At the end of the night, a short film (about 1 - 2 minutes long) has been created by dozens of jolly animators.
