CSU Summer Arts

Well here's something that's a long time coming--the piece I did for CSU Summer Arts in Monterey, California in July.  I was lucky enough to place pretty well in a CTN Expo demo reel conest and had a good chunk of my tuition covered for it.  I had an amazing time learning from some amazing Dreamworks  animators (and former Disney and  Aardman animators, at that!), our very talented and enthusiastic course instructor, and some wonderful acting coaches too.  It was a crazy two weeks (I never even went to Monterey, except to catch a bus.  We were on the college campus outside of it almost the entire time), learned a ton, and met a lot of wonderful 2D and 3D student animators from across the United States while getting to work with a couple former Sheridan classmates too.  It was a great experience, thanks CTN and everybody else involved!

My piece was based on that awful moment when you can't find your credit card when you're at the checkout.  I hope the ending reads, we got a little rushed for time as we spent most of the first week working things out with our acting coaches and getting some great lectures before we got down to the actual production of things. 

(The card is in his shirt pocket, the cashier grabs it for him.)
