A new section has been added to the student corner. For the kick-off, enjoy three clips from films that were in competition at this year's CSUN California Sun Animation Festival, including "Best of Festival" winner "Der Rabe," by Hannes Rall, a loose adaptation of the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe. In Evan Spiridellis' "Evan's Tiny Circus," a micro-circus of cigarette-butt performers astound their audience with feats of daring acrobatics. "Snow Pea and Tofu" by David Donar relates the bazaar adventures of a little Snow Pea and some real tasty tofu.
Also in the Student Corner, this week's Must Read Articles are: "The Influence of Sound and Music on Images," where Baerbel Neubauer and William Moritz investigate the influence of Sound and Music on animation.
