The contest is open to students entering grades 10 thru 12 in the fall of 2013. Interested students must come up with a storyboard and submit their entry. The winner will actualize their storyboard using Toon Boom software during College PreView at CCAD during the summer. College PreView is a three week, on campus, residential program that runs from July 7 to July 27, 2013.
Montreal-based Emmy-Award winning Toon Boom is the platform behind the development of Nickelodeon’s “Rug Rats,” Disney’s “Princess and The Frog,” and feature movie versions of “The Simpsons” and “SpongeBob Square Pants.”
CCAD is noted as a leader in the animation arena. CCAD’s President Denny Griffith recently noted that, “Our Animation program is rated No. 3 in the Midwest, and we just celebrated with our 2010 grad Steve Hubbard who was part of the Oscar-winning animation team for ‘Life of Pi. ’ And we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of ‘Monsters U,’ which is directed by alum Dan Scanlon.”
