Squash & Stretch

Squash & Stretch is an intensive animation challenge that engages industry animators and emerging animators alike to create a short film in 48 hours.

All members will receive industry mentorship and experience in the areas of character development, storytelling, animation, illustration, and presentation skills. We will form teams by combining participants with diverse skill-sets who will then collaborate to finesse new ideas. Local industry leaders will guide groups throughout the process of completing their films.
