What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

He Went to Jared*


*probably only funny if you live in the U.S.


SVA (School of Visual Arts) students Thaddaeus AndreadesMarie RaoultNicholas Manfredi, and Elizabeth Ku-Herrero (and friends) created this very sweet and clever animation as their senior project. They also made an adorable podcast wherein they discuss their influences, talk about their process, and tell us what it was like to work and live together. That’s right. They lived together during production. Sounds like sitcom territory to me! The only thing my roommates and I produced was laundry, empty beer bottles, and inside jokes.

As great as their design and execution work is (and it really is great), it’s their story arc with which I am most pleased. Most of my grade school friends went to SVA, so we shot short films nearly every weekend for years. Those films were a lot of fun to make and to watch, but I’m blown away by how professional this looks! It’s incredible that a group of students could produce something so polished that it feels like a Pixar short. SVA student films have come a long way!
