CSULB Animation students participate in 24-hour contest

Posted on September 29, 2014 by School of Art

Over the weekend, animation students competed in the tenth annual 24-Hour Animation contest, the brainchild of CSULB Animation professor Aubry Mintz. On friday, September 26 at 5pm, Prof. Mintz announced this year’s theme, a quote from George Orwell’s Animal Farm, 
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” From there over 250 students across the nation (and for the first time this year, internationally) will work through the night to conceptualize and complete an animated film in a nearly impossible amount of time. “To do this in 24 hours is stupid,” Mintz said, laughing. “It’s ridiculous.” Students worked throughout the night, and 52 teams from 13 schools all over the country as well as Canada and Australia created half-minute shorts based on this years theme. For more information, click here;  for the films, please click here.
