Last weekend the Digital Media Arts Animation department at Huntington University participated in the 49 Hour Film Competition hosted by the MG Collective in Indianapolis. The goal of the competition was to make a short animated film in only 49 hours from concept to final submission. Five teams and about two dozen students took part. While I was not directly involved in any of the groups, I did have the pleasure of helping to document the event.
