Isaac Kerlow and the jury have completed the trailer for the 2010 Computer Animation Festival. The Computer Animation Festival Committee of Joshua Grow, Laura Henneman, Katie Fellion and Joan Collins, along with editors and Mr Kerlow promise a massively refreshing collection of animated talent this coming July.
"The 2010 Computer Animation Festival continues the tradition of showcasing the best in computer animation and visual effects," says Kerlow. "This year we have formalized the submission categories to bring the Computer Animation Festival more in line with other top international film festivals and to make the jury process a bit easier. We have a Student Projects category, for example, among the new submission categories, so that computer-animated works produced to satisfy a school, coursework, and/or graduation requirement are to be submitted under this category."
