2012 Student Academy Award Winners - Animation

This past May 7 just 10 days ago, I posted here on AN's homepage an entry concerning David Wolter's film "Eyrie" which was nominated as a finalist for the Student Academy Awards by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Happy to report that David's film was one of 3 winners in the animation category. He hails from the character animation program at Cal Arts, and he also spent time at The Animation Academy in Burbank prior to that. The other two are "The Jockstrap Raiders" by Mark Nelson of UCLA and "My Little Friend' by Eric Prah of the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.

Let's revisit David Wolter's Eyrie, and also feature some video concerning Mark Nelson's film, The Jockstrap Raiders. Video for Eric Prah's film is not available online at this time, but you can visit his blog here. Congratulations to all 3 winners!
