For the second consecutive year, the Tribeca Film Festival has asked SVA students to contribute original animation work for all of the festival’s pre-screening programs. Current students Hanna Alvgren and Jaime Ekkens (MFA Computer Art Department); John Covell, Sung In Sohn, Susie Hong, Samantha Lai, Hee Sun Kim and David Wendl (BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects Department); and Jessica Honore and Michael J. Ruocco (BFA Film, Video and Animation Department) have created short animations of the Tribeca logo, which will be shown before each of Tribeca’s approximately 700 film screenings. The festival runs April 22 – May 3 at various venues throughout the city.
One of those venues will be SVA: the College is hosting several Tribeca screenings and Behind the Screens Sponsored by iShares events in the newly opened SVA Theater, located at 333 West 23rd Street. For information on these and other Tribeca Film Festival screenings, visit tribecafilmfestival.org.
