Animated Dreams Student Competition

The word “enthusiasm” originates from Greek. It consists of the root words “theos” (god) and “en” (in) meaning “God within.” A student making an animated film, usually alone, is confronted with an unbearable amount of work. The only way to manage is with enthusiasm, an invincible inner belief. Many of the selected student films here are exceptionally mature but still carry a freshness that is so hard to maintain in later years. Seeing these films is like glimpsing into the future.
