Screenwriting & Animation

SWAN Student Work

Our students don't just learn the tools they will need to thrive in a 21st century film industry, they are creating work - both their own and in support of real clients - every day. Whether it's short films, public service announcements, animations, or advertisements, our students are building and sharing creative work now.

Here's a brief sampling of recent work from our students and alumni:
