This year, participants will also create animation, but for the 2008 Hong Kong OLYMPICS! "MARATHON" is a short animated video produced on location in the Louisiana Old State Capital during the Red Stick International Animation Festival as a Festival Workshop. As a member of the ASIFA International Animation Workshop Group (AWG), we coordinate efforts in international expositions of our animation classes. This year's theme is "Olympics, Let's Fantasy!". Students will shoot all over Baton Rouge's downtown, and create their own animated content in a single day! Lunch will be served.
