Where's the Beef?


Congratulations to graduating Di senior Christian Ramirez for his animation being awarded Best Short Film at the 2011 DigiCom Student and Teacher Film Festival!

The 2:55 minute short, Where's the Beef, took about 1.5 years to make using Flash CS5 and GarageBand.

After graduating, Christian will be attending California Baptist University in Riverside focusing on graphic design and digital imaging. He plans to further his studies to pursue a career in game design at either Full Sail, the Art institute, or the Gnomon School of Visual Effects.

  5. Though I do not feel that I deserve the credit, Christian offered me the position of artistic director in his video. Helping him make simplistic choices during the production of his video increased my own skills as an animator.

  8. I was there when Christian first started this animation back in our junior year that was when I was back an animation and let me tell you animation takes patience, hard work and determination. Christian deserved this award and a lot of credit for being able to do work on this animation for 1.5 years.
