Our senior class film, “Estefan,” was a TON of fun to work on. I was lucky enough to be Animation Lead on it, and as a character animator I couldn’t have asked for a better film to work on. Tons of fun, great story and great characters. Thanks to Lauren Oppenlander (the creator of Estefan), Jeff Call (the director), Lauren Taylor (the producer), Scott Gwynn (art director), and the awesome faculty at BYU’s Center for Animation for the opportunity.
Last year, right after we finished, we submitted it to SIGGRAPH, and lo and behold, we won the prize for Best Student Project!
Also, this past week, we found out that we took first place at the College Television Awards, for BYU’s 12th Student Emmy!
Congrats to everyone on the crew. I’m super proud of this film.
