Sam Houston State University showcased the talent of Computer Animation students at the Department of Art’s 2016 Animation Festival.
The hour long screening featured a variety of animated short films. All 31 short films allowed the audience a glimpse into what the students that worked on them thought and felt, even though each had a different subject matter.
Some were fun and silly but still had a poignant message such as “How to Adult” by Kasey Carboni, which told the story of a girl who marches to the beat of her own drum and doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her. While others like “Connected” by Paige Beique and Jazzlyn Weaver, capitalized on life inAn a digital age in a positive way.
SHSU’s Animation Festival was a successful platform from which creativity could bloom and to display that sometimes a movie can speak louder without dialogue.
The festival took place on Friday with a reception at 5 p.m. and the festival began at 6 p.m.
