We saw a link to the video above on CalArts' Character Animation Program's Twitter stream yesterday and just had to post here on 24700 as well. The short animation film is titled Ink'd and was created last year by Cindey Chiang, then a third-year BFA student at CalArts. (The original music was also created by fellow student Andy Studer [Music BFA 12]). The film was recently accepted by the NFFTY film festival in Seattle and will screen on April 30.
