Prestigious Film Festival Screens Animated BYU Film

June 2022

Salt, an animated short film that was directed and produced by BYU students, was screened at the prestigious 2021 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.

Student director Alicia Scott and student producer Dallin Jones worked with roughly 50 fellow students to make the film a reality. The project began in October 2018 and was completed in May 2020.

Established in 2008, the BYU Center for Animation operates under the direction of the animation program and two colleges: the College of Fine Arts and Communications and the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. The Center for Animation provides students with opportunities to develop necessary skill sets for success in the animation, live-action, special effects, and game industries.

Many real-world learning opportunities for BYU students in the Center for Animation and elsewhere on campus are possible thanks to generous alumni and friends.
