  • Nicely animated. Not keen on the story though and I didn’t realise that the main character was a girl until I noticed the pigtails in the final scene…

    • Dave

      Even though Nancy called her Vivian when they got off the bus?

  • Nice!

    Love it!

  • I love this SO much! Two very talented people, can’t wait to see where their future careers take them. :)

  • Ringling College of Art & Design continues to set the bar for animation education.

  • Cute. But not too cute.
    Very nicely done

  • Now THAT is a thesis film

    Support or detract, there is no denying the EFFORT

    Tip top marks all round

    Oh I love this–I wish I had a demon like that when I was little so I could get revenge on those who picked on me…

    The demon is adorable.

    This was done by 2 students? Wow. I found myself wanting it to go to the next episode, lol. Loved all the details in the room and facial expressions. More please?

  • Damn, student films are pretty fantastic these days. I’m sure this is an exceptional example and not the norm, but still… Amazing work.

    I can say I am proud friends with these two amazing artists and a fellow Ringling computer animator. So much talent and vision comes from my school. I can guarantee next Spring’s batch of seniors, my year, will impress as well! :D

  • ha! pretty fun! nice compositions, funny gags! great animation. Well done.

  • Pretty cool. A little sugary for my taste, but nicely executed. The blonde twit was well animated, great poses, and movement. Eyes a little big all around, but now I’m nitpicking.

    It delivered in a way that was unexpected. Like the Coyote Roadrunner cartoons of old, you knew blondie would get it, but it came about in a way that was pleasantly surprising.

    Good job!
