Student Animation Collaboration Showing at 2024 EDU Film Festival

April 29, 2024

Anjali Fra (Visual Arts 2024) created the poster to go with the submission to the EDU Film Festival.

A student animation collaboration will be shown at the 2024 EDU Film Festival on Friday, May 17th. Perpich animators in the 3rd Quarter’s Animation Exploration created “Train Ride”, a parallax experiment where an environment was designed with layered distances to create the illusion of a truck shot aka left and right motion of a camera. Each student was able to choose how they rendered their environments and the class used After Effects to combine and keyframe motion to make a convincing shot. Their classmate, Remy Shoquist (Music 2024), produced the film’s music.

Cameron Browne, Visual Arts Instructor, is the instructor for Animation Exploration. “Everyone’s work turned out so well,” said Browne. “The fact that we were working on this specific kind of movement made the collection inherently cohesive. With a little editing and an excellent lo-fi track from our Music student friend, Remy, we made a great collaboration that will show at the EDU Film Festival!”

The EDU Film Festival serves an important role in the development of young filmmakers in Minnesota. EDU aims to provide young filmmakers with an authentic film festival experience, a valuable understanding of the film industry, and an opportunity to screen their movies in a theatrical setting.

By putting students together with Minnesota filmmakers, industry professionals, and post high school educational institutions, the EDU Film Festival also introduces the young filmmakers to the variety of film industry options available in Minnesota.

The EDU Film Festival provides a time and place for young filmmakers from all over the state to interact with each other, form friendships and partnerships, and to create a professional network of peers.
