From Carissa Dorson (BFA  11) The comedy feature that I shot last year, "It's a Party," is coming to LA on May 9th!

From Jason Mauer, Film School Digital Animation faculty, “I wanted to share with you all a P.S.A. I just finished for the florida based organization Lauren's Kids ( https://laurenskids.org<https://laurenskids.org/> ). Two of our BFA3 animation students - Kaia Irish and Caro Beguiristain worked on it with me.  Caro worked with me on story dev and did all the storyboards. Kaia was responsible for working with me on color and painting the backgrounds and the character pieces. They did a remarkable job and were a joy to work with. The spot is planning on airing in April, nationally, in conjunction with National Child abuse prevention month. The link is password protected with LaurensKids  https://vimeo.com/259318864

From Billy Hanson (BFA 05)  “All episodes of Lightning Dogs, a short series that I directed and produced, were just released on Funny or Die, and the show has been holding at #1 on the FoD leader board for over a week now, so we're hoping to keep up the views and "Funny" votes to keep us there for a long time. The series was produced through my company, Dirigo Entertainment, and distributed by Toronto-based media company, iThentic. It stars the show's two creators, Brett Elam and Joshua Logan, along with Khara Campbell, David Chattam, A. Monnie Aleahmad, and Erica Jenkins.

From Anthony Cabrera (BFA ADA15)  “That moment you are in a theatre while people gasp, cheer, clap, get choked up, and feel all the feels, watching a movie that you put so much into!
