AtlantAmation will showcase a collection of short subject animated films using a variety of different media from the latest in digital 3-D techniques to stop-motion and classic 2-D animation.

"This event offers the local community a rare chance to see films by a few of the university's talented student animators in Atlanta," says Matt Maloney, associate chair of animation. "The caliber of work produced by our students reflect a certain charm and dynamism to be found in their pieces while demonstrating a variety of media to create their films."
