FMA Alum Kandis Hutchenson went from learning about and appreciating the world of animation to working with Dreamworks in just a few years.

"I remember our MFA colloquium class where we had to introduce ourselves, and I had just discovered the animated series Avatar: the Last Airbender and spoke about it."

When she had a one on one coffee with her, it felt "like a dream come true."

Temple FMA students create amazing films and we were so upset not to be able to celebrate them this past Spring in our annual Diamond Screen Film Festival or our BFA Master Class Showcase. Because of Covid-19 and the fact that our semester was truncated, many of the films that we would have enjoyed at the end of the semester could not be finished.
