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.

Seasons Greetings!!

Hope everyone made it home okay, or else settled in someplace warm. Sucks about the strike... hope most people escaped that. Here's something fun I found... a 30-minute Christmas special from 1987 made by good ol' Will Vinton. Might spark some childhood memories - I know I used to fight with my sister over who got to wear the California Raisins shirt to bed, hehe. Happy holidays all.

The ASIFA-East screening of “Dream On Silly Dreamer"

Tony West (Producer) and Dan Lund (director) are proud to have ASIFA-East bring “Dream On Silly Dreamer” to the Big Apple for it’s New York premier!
This live action/animation documentary short subject tells the story that began March 25th, 2002 when more than 200 Disney artists working at the studio’s legendary Feature Animation Department in Burbank were told that their services were no longer needed. The Walt Disney Company, best known for its handcrafted animated features, no longer wanted these highly skilled traditional animation artists to draw for them.

Club pic?

So I know seniors are working on getting a pic into the prattonia people (yeah . . . working on it) but aren't we entitled to a club photo??? I say we take some wacky photos (quickly- I know we all have crazy work) this weeked in someones room or the lounge. It will be fun! Damn it- fun!


I'm guessing that most people's top priority next Friday (the 16th) will be sleeping or jetting home... but if not, I'm planning on seeing King Kong that night, probably the 11:30 show at Court Street. You should all come! And you can come to the Bronx Zoo on Saturday too! Yay. Lemme know if you're interested.

sanity check

Hey guys... you're probably all feeling as insane as I am and can't imagine anything but final projects right now... but assuming we all survive this semester, I propose a trip to the Bronx Zoo to view some animals and holiday lights. It would be two weeks from now, the day after classes end. They have a special Holiday Lights thing going on, beginning at 5, so we can even sleep in! I've been to it before, and it's very nice. The houses are still open so we can still see many of the animals, and even draw them if we're still physically and mentally able to work a pencil. Anyone up for it?
