LAist reviews the Calarts Producers Show



LAist, a Los Angeles themed website that reads like a hipper, more locally aware online edition of the L.A. Times, did a review of the annual Calarts Producers Show. As most of my readers know, this one-night-only screening is culled from the best films done in the character animation program at Calarts during the year and presented specifically to showcase the students to prospective employers and other interested parties.

I wasn't able to be there this year although I had a last minute invitation on Thursday evening. I wish I had gone after hearing the various wrapups yesterday from my colleagues who attended--and finding this article on LAist. I confess I'm a little shocked that it warranted mention as it's such an insider sort of show, or was. Is it openly advertised these days?
In any event it's a serious review of the show, with particular mentions (and critiques) of some of the standouts among the standouts. Go over to LAist and peruse their take.
In addition, if anyone can put names to the design art featured in the photograph at left it would be much appreciated.

It's by Andre Medina who (i believe) is a 2nd year at the moment.

The show was fun. The student artwork was also fun, though one gets the impression they could use a strong design teacher (both basic and character), and some basic drawing classes. The open show, as usual, was more fun.
