ARTimation...and other stuff

so, every year The Illinois Institute of Art-Schaumburg (ILIS) hosts a digital art festival (ARTimation) to showcase student work on a national level. judges are invited from across the U.S to judge the work and choose the winner in a designated category, such as Best 2D animation, Best Concept, Best Motion Graphic, Best Interface Design, etc. the selected pieces are shown (and the winners are annouced) at AMC Barrington Theater (175 Studio Dr., South Barrington, IL).

im very excited because my title sequence made the cut and will be shown in the Digital Video & Motion Graphics portion of the show! the festival is wednesday, oct if you're able to make it, you should definitely come! :)
