As part ofÂ After School Special: The 2018 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a special 3D screening of the Academy Award-nominated animated filmÂ Ferdinand (2017) by Blue Sky Studios. Following the film, we’ll be joined by three SVA MFA Computer Arts alumni for a special Q&A — the film’s director, Carlos Saldanha, and two of its artists/animators, Mark Adams and Ricky Renna. The film will be preceded by the new animated shortÂ TastefulÂ by SVA BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects alumnus Morr Meroz.Â Â The Q&A will be moderated by current student Dominick Bedasse (MFA 2019 Computer Arts).
Synopsis: After Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.
