STUDENT SHOWCASE / AWARD WINNING WORK
Student work continues to pleasantly surprise everyone in the industry. Sometimes it's disciplined design and application of traditional practices, and other times student work breaks from tradition or implements new technology to achieve new, equally successful work.
This month, join us as we host two discussions with some very talented students.

A short film about a little girl named Shai. This is a story about desperation, dreams and yearnings. Inspired by "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen

When & Where
Digital Media Artists \ Los Angeles
Digital Media Artists / Los Angeles (DMA/LA) is an association for professionals creating imagery for video, film, and other media using desktop tools. MGLA was formed in August 1997 through the merger of several previously-existing groups. DMA/LA is an extention of that - continuing in 2008. DMA/LA's area of discussions are not restricted to a specific hardware or software solution, understanding that an artist often has to employ 2D, 3D, and other digital tools to realize their vision - and that artistic inspiration can be universal.
