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.

Pratt News

Hi All,

Well, there was a faculty meeting of the Animation teachers last night, and I thought I'd keep you all updated about what was discussed.

First off, the faculty seems solidly behind seperating the animation from the live action senior show. We're thinking that we could have the show, perhaps at two seperate times, at a theater in Manhattan like Two Boots Pioneer. That would make it easier to get recruiters and industry folks to show up. Also, we thought the format could be a show followed by a panel-type Q7A with the animators.

Also, there will be a contest to create a poster for the Senior Show. The poster will be hung around Pratt and in animator hang-outs. It will also be produced as a postcard that will be sent to studios. We'll need a work-study student for that, I think.

What else? Well, I'm stopping by B&H on the way home today and I'm getting two new DV cameras. One for G-50 and one for D-9. Something with a shut-off for auto-focus. We're going to order a few more, but I've been asking for new cameras for those rooms for three years now and can't wait any more.

Have you all met Naree Song and Andy London? They are new professors this fall and are both cool. Naree was an animator on Little Einsteins and works at her own studio now. She's a whiz with Photoshop, Flash, After Effects, and production methods. Andy runs London Squared productions and is a crack puppet animator with some great ideas about story telling. Naree will be teaching Character I and Animation I, Andy will be teaching Storyboarding.

this sounds excellent, especially about the whole senior show bit. perfect ideas...i never thought about making it in manhattan. if there's any other place it could be I would suggest memorial hall on campus too. and kudos to you for working on the new camera problem. we're all really carving out a good dept. i think.
