Over 100 students collaborated on Alyce Tzue’s stunning animation that follows a young girl who builds a flying machine
Academy of Art University alumna Alyce Tzue is flying high on the success of her 3-D animated short film, Soar. Since completing the movie she worked on for three years as an animation graduate student, she and her team have submitted Soar to 30 high-profile festivals.
“We’ve been focusing on quality over quantity,” explained Tzue, who works as an animator for virtual reality game-maker Oculus. “There’s a shortlist of festivals you need to win for the sake of getting into the Academy Awards.”
