Villa Maria College Film & Animation Screening

Still from The Perfect Day by Vincent Czapla

May 13th, 2017
@ Squeaky Wheel
Free and open to the public

We are excited to present the work of junior and senior animations students in Villa Maria College’s BFA in Animation Program in our microcinema this spring. The program includes short animated films created by the students, with the guidance of the faculty, from initial storyboard, to animation, to final edit. Also included in the screening, will be a few notable shorts from our new BFA in Digital Filmmaking program, which launched in the fall of 2016. Including work by Vincent Czapla, Christopher Harper, Kevin Fan, Ginette Melendez, Tiyame Gomillion, among others.

Following the screening the show continues at Buffalo Arts Studio (Tri-Main Center 2495 Main Street, Suite 500), from 5-8pm, where 22 additional juniors and seniors will be displaying their work in more specialized fields, such as 3D digital modeling, character design, motion graphics, and character animation.

Villa Maria College’s Animation program is ground in the fundamentals of animation and fine art. See where your talent can take you.
