Character Animation and Animation/Visual Effects Premieres

UCF College of Arts and Humanities

Enjoy a series of award-winning short, animated films from students in the graduate and undergraduate programs in the School of Visual Arts and Design.

Presented by the School of Visual Arts & Design (SVAD), visitors will view student-created animated films from the past 3 years of the Emerging Media BFA Character Animation track and the Emerging Media MFA in Animation and Visual Effects track.  This two-part event also offers a Q&A with the animators. Please note: this event contains some material not suitable for children.

Six short films that have already garnered hundreds of acceptances and awards in film festivals around the world will be screened first.  These were created by students who earned the highly competitive Emerging Media: Character Animation B. F. A.

These will be followed by screenings of the thesis works from students who have earned an Animation and Visual Effects M.F.A.  This terminal degree offers students the opportunity for self-expression by creation of their own work while mastering their skills in these areas.

Every year, UCF brings its best and brightest artists to Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for a large-scale celebration of the things that make our world more interesting and beautiful. This year, UCF Celebrates the Arts is bigger than ever, with a multi-day production of an award-winning, family-friendly musical, concerts in the new Steinmetz Hall, lectures and discussions, multimedia events, chamber music, an expanded visual arts presence and more surprises to delight you.
