Why Europeans Teach Animation Better

Overtime

A lot of people over the past few years (myself included) have been highly impressed with student animation films coming out of European schools such as Les Gobelins and Supinfocom. We’ve even mentioned a number of the films on the Brew including OVER TIME, LE BUILDING and SUPER TIBETAN RACER. This interesting AWN article by Christopher Panzner attempts to explain why the films produced by European students are so damn good. Want to know the most impressive figure cited in the article? Cost of one year’s tuition at Gobelins: US$2,200. That should make a few CalArts and RISD students weep over the weekend.
