We're happy to announce that one of our Animation Workshop students, Adam Markajani, has an animated short playing in the First Annual GVC-NYCLU PSA Film Festival. It's a PSA about the First Amendment, starring his character Flappy the Rabbit.
We encourage everyone to come out and support Adam and other Rochester youths this Sunday at the Litte Theatre.
