Something strange is going on in Brooklyn. A giant bread creature is poised to attack the city, aliens are living next door, a bear turns up missing, felt critters are walking & talking, and old people start hooking up on the internets. Maybe there's something funny in the water.

The Pratt Institute's Media Arts Department proudly presents the Traditional Animation thesis films of the graduating class of 2007, as well as selected shorts. Students will be in attendance for a Q&A to talk about their stop motion, 2-D computer animation, and hand-drawn films.

Free and open to the public, May 4th & 5th, 7pm at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater


We are a group of animators that attend Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn, New York. Here is our archives of sketches, photos, and animations.

Storytelling Workshop & NEWS

Hey All,

The team of Andy and Carolyn London ( http://www.londonsquared.net/ ) will be visiting Pratt Thursday, December 8th at 7pm to do a storytelling workshop. They have a very different method of writing than I do, and I think it would be a useful thing to attend. They made "The Backbrace" which I think some of you saw at Ottawa. It won a prize.

If you're interested in checking out this workshop, please reply to this post. I'd like to gauge interest so I can figure out what room to put this in.

In other news, the show I pitched to Cartoon Network over two years ago and forgot about just got optioned a few minutes ago. Hooray! It doesn't mean I get a show, but it does mean they'll fund a storyboard. Cool.

storytelling sounds good.

Is it the Utica Cartoon?

Nope. It's the third show we've had optioned. I'll explain the process more in Animation II, but basically you pitch a show. Then you want a long time and revise your pitch several times. Eventually they "option" it if they like your pitch, which means they pay for a bible, story outline, and storyboard. If that goes good, they pay for a pilot. If that goes good, they pay for a show. We're still a long way off, but it's good news.

Is the workshop open to anyone? Or just current animation students? Because I'd love to attend - I plan on taking a storytelling class in the future anyway.

I think it will be open to everyone, but if it's packed, animation students and media arts students will get priority.
