Ringling College and the Academy Awards

Ringling School of Art and DesignMy alma mater, the Ringling College of Art and Design, is in the news. Apparently, their alumni do pretty well at the Academy Awards. Here’s a quote from the article:

Since the introduction of the Best Animated Feature category to the Academy Awards in 2001, every award-winning film — with the exception of the Japanese-produced Oscar winner, “Spirited Away,” in 2002 — credits the work of graduates from Ringling’s specialized four-year computer animation program.

It’s an interesting article. Even though I studied Illustration there and not Computer Animation, it’s nice to see my fellow students having success after school.
