When Curfew won the Oscar for Best Short Film (Live Action) at the 85th Academy Awards, BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects Department faculty member Jerome Thelia shared in the honor for his work on the film. As colorist and post-production supervisor, Thelia worked closely with the Curfew‘s writer and director, Shawn Christensen, and its
cinematographer, Daniel Katz.
In addition to teaching both Color Grading and Thesis Pre-Production in the BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects Department at SVA, Thelia regularly does work for commercials, music videos, documentaries and feature films.
