‘Toon Boom’ Spotlights Award-Winning Animations from SVA
July 28, 2017
From Toon Boom: “On May 8, the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City honoured the achievements of animation students and alumni at the 2017 Dusty Awards. Directed and produced by Annie Flocco, the event featured an esteemed presenters list of industry influencers and was the climax of the 28th Dusty Film and Animation Festival, which provides a platform for emerging talent from SVA’s BFA Film and BFA Animation programs. This year, over 100 students saw their work take centre stage.
Toon Boom is proud to be an official sponsor of the Dusty Awards. As a Toon Boom Centre of Excellence, we have partnered with SVA to propel the potential of students and carry them from school to the studio.

We have exclusively brought together the 2017 Dusty Award animation winners’ work. Watch it below and read their interviews with Toon Boom about their time at SVA and life after graduation…” (For the interviews and videos, click here)
