A 2009 Ringling graduating student animation by Jorge Garcia. You can see more from the graduates, like: Wild Dogs by Cat Hicks and Heavenly Appeals by David Lisbe (nice character animation), linked from this clip.
There has been some discussion in the ether about the appeal of the Ringling College animations being, in part, due to a focus on narrative as compared to a showreel of animation exercises.
What are your comments on that idea?
Gold: Reminds me of what an animator once told me "ITS OK TO BE AN ANIMATOR AND NOT BE A STORYTELLER OR DESIGNER! THE CRAFT OF ANIMATING IS WORTHY OF YOUR UNDEVIDED ATTENTION IF THAT IS THE BIT YOU ENJOY! Gasp! There I said it. . . RUN!"
