This remarkable graduation film from France’s Ecole des Métiers du Cinéma d’Animation (aka EMCA, the School of Film Animation) has it all: design, color and style to spare. It was created by Thierno Bah, Noé Giuliani, Pierre Ledain and David Martins da Silva. Beautiful job!

Welcome to the third annual Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival. Over the course of the next ten weeks, we’ll be debuting ten remarkable student animated shorts.

We’re launching the festival today with 21 Years in 7 Minutes by Caroline Torres (Rhode Island School of Design). Autobiographical stories are a staple of student filmmakers, but rarely have we seen one as confident and original as this one. Torres’ fast-paced accounting of her life uses superb visual storytelling filled with comedy and heart, and pairs it with a distinctively quirky animation style that complements the simple line artwork. The film is a pleasant reminder that life is most often about friendship in all its many forms, from boy-next door crushes to BFFs who share in everything to animation school friendships in which people often connect through their characters.

Click HERE to meet the filmmaker Caroline Torres and comment on the film.


The Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival is made possible by the generosity of our presenting sponsor JibJab.

Here’s the perfect film for me to post in the middle of the night. Andres Tapeton’s graduation film from the Classical Animation program at the Vancouver Film School. It’s quite a trip. Tapeton wrote us to explain:

“This one is really personal, since it’s a representation of the most recurrent dream I have since childhood. I’ve been writing my dreams sporadically through the years, and I always joked when I was in school that some day I would make films out of them. And well, luckily my life brought me to the point that I actually know how to do that now, hah. And that’s why this one is just a prologue of what hopefully will become a personal animated project.”

Junaid Chundrigar made Sheeped Away in 7 months at the Utrecht School of the Arts, in the Netherlands. It’s the tale of a farmer who just wants to keep his beloved sheep safe from a giant UFO, without waking his judgemental wife. Chundrigar also posted a quickie making of reel here.

Passenger is a hand-drawn film that abstracts the nighttime driving experience into a playful, kinetic performance of color and shape. It’s a junior year film by the piquantly named Africanus Okokon. He attends Rhode Island School of Design, which was also the point of origin for Playing for Keeeps, the short that we debuted yesterday as part of our Student Animation Festival.

Here’s a Cal Arts student film from this past year’s producers show that really impressed me with its storytelling. Obviously I wasn’t the only one impressed. David Wolter just started work this week in Dreamworks story department.
