On Saturday, January 28, Project X Productions will debut its latest student-produced animated short film, Trouble Brewing, at its homebase of Cogswell College in San Jose, California. The 3D CG project tells the story of a chance encounter between a troll and a rambunctious baby goat.
The evening event, set for 6-9 p.m., will include the film’s premiere and a panel discussion with Project X alumni to discuss their work on Trouble Brewing and their post-Cogswell careers.
Project X Productions is a unique, project-based course that exposes Cogswell students to every element of animation production, allowing them to hone their skills and experience an industry-standard production pipeline. Accepted students tackle all concept and character design, modeling, texturing, effects, rigging, lighting, rendering, animation, compositing and production management in collaboration with faculty and industry advisors.
Project X’s previous films include multiple-award winners The Offering (2010) and Worlds Apart (2011).
