Animation and visual effects instructor Richie Jimenez saw a need for more local opportunities for students to work in the animation field, so with the help of project partner Kevin Palmer, more opportunities were created. Through the creation of an animated short titled “Fishing for the Soul” the duo has hired on three GCU alumni to work on the project and hope to continue to raise funds via the project’s Kickstarter. “By including past students on the production team, Richie is showing first-hand how the skills learned in our Digital Design program can be put to work,” Digital Design Director Sheila Schumacher said. “As a mentor and leader for the students, he always looks for ways to challenge them to tell better stories and create engaging characters.”
