Hey, white Steven Universe fans. These are all the POC in the cast of Steven Universe. You notice how 3 of the 4 leads are WOC? Or how this is more than 2/3 of the extended cast of the show? Representation matters. Trying to litigate the racial background of these characters because you want to identify with them as white is fucking shitty. Stop it. White people are massively over-represented in TV shows and movies. We don’t need to steal back characters whose creators have deliberated coded as non-white.
Congratulations to our BFA4 student Sunmee Dong, whose film “Shell Out” just won Best Family Animation at the 2011 SoDak Animation Festival. The award was voted on by the audience. Sunmee’s film was also chosen for our 2011 Character Animation Producers’ Show last May, at the Television Academy in Los Angeles.
So cute <3
More animations featuring hermies please
Alma is a creepy short film that is about 5 minutes long. It’s about a adorable little girl, who finds a doll that looks just like her in an abandoned store. I’m not going to spoil it for you, but this short film was disturbingly amazing. (Watch it here) (Masterpost of creepy short films)
Oh my gosh, I remember this film. It’s terrifying.
