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 3rd Annual SIGGRAPH Asia Computer Animation Festival. The festival takes place in Seoul Korea from December 15 to 18, 2010.

The SIGGRAPH Asia Computer Animation Festival strives to present a challenging array of the latest connections between art and technology and broaden new horizons in animation and its related fields. The Festival Committee received hundreds of entries and invited those that represented the highest quality, interest and impact on the SIGGRAPH Asia community. This year promises to offer an exciting display of cutting edge and innovative works that demonstrate the transition in computer graphics and interactive techniques.

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.
