The Monkey King: Uproar in Heaven 3D

April 2nd, 2012 by dayna 1 Comment »


Article by Tristian Goik. The New York International Children’s Film Festival added several surprise screenings, and I opted to buy a ticket for “The Monkey King,” so I could enjoy a nice 3D movie without the hassle of having to help other people.  I love being a volunteer, don’t get me wrong, but I decided to cut through the moral red tape of the situation by just putting some money down.  Also, have you ever […]

Time-Line 3

Warning: One of these segments includes frontal nudity, but simplified. Probably nothing to get offended over. I love anijams. Whatever or however the grouping works, I love seeing how different artists can be from one another, even with the same guidelines in mind. It’s an excellent project for animation students, and Robert Lyons has proven that here with a 9 minute collection of short animations by various students.             Created […]

Student Night

March 15th, 2012 by Emmett Comments Off

It’s that time of year where the members of ASIFA-East judge the submissions to the annual animation festival. The Student Films jury screening brings attention of sorts to trends amongst animation schools and students. Animation schools, it seems, each have a certain reputation for certain kinds of films and thesis. Sometimes, it’s the students who go against these reputations who succeed in standing out from the rest. But something else that sometimes goes unnoticed are […]

Commissioned, Educational, Experimental, and Music Video Night

March 15th, 2012 by dayna Comments Off

Article by Caresse Singh. The Commissioned/Educational/Experimental/Music Video jury night was a night dedicated to worthy causes. From explaining the process of the water cycle, to relaying the heroic tragedy of two of NY’s finest, and ending with an anthem of metal, the night ran the full gamut of the entertainment spectrum. Some of the regulars were up for judgment, with films that you may have already seen circulating this year. Most of the commissioned films […]
