Nicktoons, the series of children’s animations broadcast on the Nickelodeon network, recently ran its annual Nicktoons Network Animation Festival. Five animated shorts by alumni of the BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects Department were aired in October on the network as finalists: A Faery’s Tale by Sylvia Apostol (2007); El Mono by Min Chung Cho (2007); Alien Abduction by David Han (2008); Henshin by Eric Huang (2008); and Lilium Urbanus by Joji Tsuruga (2008) and Anca Risca (2008).
After much deliberation and viewer feedback, the 2008 Grand Jury Award went to Min Chung Cho’s El Mono, which depicts a young woman’s surreal journey on a New York City subway train. Cho will receive a $10,000 prize, and a video stream of the animated short is being featured on the Nicktoons Web site.
