    Snatch! and Terminal B

    “Snatch!” and “Terminal B” are two short animated films created during the Reel FX Animation Production course (ATEC 4371 and ATEC 6385) offered during the summer 2015 semester.  Twenty-five ATEC students teamed up with eleven digital artist professionals from local animation studio, Reel FX, to complete the two 45 second pieces.  The Reel FX professionals visited the UTD campus over the course of the eleven weeks, a different artist each week, to work closely with the students on everything from modeling the characters to polishing their animated performances to using lighting to create the final mood and feel of the films.
