Do you remember the Sam Brubaker's movie 'Infinitum' from last years Art Festival? Well, not only did he win first prize during the Blender Conference, but he also won an audience award for best animation during November's Asheville Film Festival. The Asheville Citizen-Times featured an article on Sam's accomplishments.
From the article:
Asheville High senior Sam Brubaker got so carried away designing his digitally animated short film â€œInfinitumâ€ for a contest, he missed the deadline. No worries. It's still an award winner.
Brubaker, 18, recently found out his one-minute animated video won a Suzanne Award for best original animation short from Blender 3D, an open-source 3D graphics animation program. His work has also won an audience award for best animation during November's Asheville Film Festival.
This is great news, Sam, congratulations!
Please note that the article mentions that Sam 'recently found out his one-minute animated video won a Suzanne Award'. I checked with Ton and this does not seem correct; everything was handled within one month after the Festival. Maybe the article has been written a few months ago but took some time to get published?
