After a semester of gaping disappointment in Columbia's animation program, I found Lindsey Olivares' thesis (from Ringling as well) and fell in love with the visual storytelling power of animation all over again. These are just two of my favorite Ringling shorts, which I use to fuel my fire for portfolio building to finally get to Ringling after three years of dreaming (and counting).
However, hope and inspiration are useless without the willpower and discipline to persevere and sacrifice. Time to get back to work.
