Cogswell Polytechnical College is pleased to announce that The Offering, the first animated, short film produced under the umbrella of the Project X class, has been selected for screening at the 1st Annual New York City International Film Festival (NYCIFF). The festival takes place from August 12 to 19, 2010.
The NYCIFF was created to promote the new generation of talented filmmakers from around the world. The Offering will be showcased at the Premier event and will precede Lovely, Still a film starring Martin Landau and Ellen Burstyn. After the theater screening, the film will be shown to the public in Times Square.
Project X is a one-of-a-kind, project-based class – unparalleled in its scope and study as it incorporates every component of animation film production for the big and small screen. This class, under the direction of Animation faculty member and long-time professional animator Michael Huber, is only available at Cogswell. Students worked tirelessly for three semesters to produce this studio-quality short film. They were supported by a massive collaborative effort from faculty, staff, visiting artists, industry professionals and alumni.
