Animation team competes in National 24 Hours Contest


A 5-person team of Visual Arts’ animation students recently competed in national 24 Hour Animation Contest.  Sponsored by California State University at Long Beach, over 50 teams from over a dozen schools across the United States were up to the challenge of creating an original thirty-second animation – with only 24 hours.

This year’s topic statement, which is only announced at the start of the 24 hour time allotment, was “What would you do if you only had 24 hours to live?”.  Student teams could use any method of animation to respond to the question.  The competition was judged by a panel of industry experts from animation companies like Laika Studios, Pixar Animation, and Warner Bros Entertainment.

SDSU Visual Arts’ team included studio arts and graphic design majors Scott Meier, Amanda Boerger, Yand Fuller, George Ruiz, and Jordan Studanski.  Watch the final original response created by the team of SDSU animators at
