Think you're 'only' a student and can't compete with the best in Hollywood? Michael Bidinger and Michelle Kwon beg to differ.
Right now, the industry's great and good are descending on LA for SIGGRAPH, the annual gathering of global animators, and where the best work from 2014-15 will be honoured in the Computer Animation Festival Awards.
And there'll be special smiles on the faces of Michael Bidinger and Michelle Kwon. Because 'Jinxy Jenkins and Lucky Lou' – the charming animation film they co-directed at Ringling College of Art and Design – has been picked as Best Computer Animated Short from over 500 submissions, including professional work.
