As part of After School Special: The 2021 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a screening of In the Heights (2021), followed by a Q&A with several of the film’s visual effects artists, all graduates of SVA’s BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects program: Martin Boksar, Nickolas Crist, Min Hwa Jung, Esther Song, and Amanda Sparso. Current SVA student Cindy Mora Hernandez (BFA 2022 Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects) will moderate the Q&A.
Synopsis: A film version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning Broadway musical in which Usnavi, a sympathetic Washington Heights bodega owner, saves every penny every day as he imagines and sings about a better life.
