Animation Blogs and Thesis Films: David Levy
I call them Graduation Movies, in the USA they are referred to as Thesis Films. David Levy's article on Buddy Holly initially attracted my attention though it was his observations on thesis films, borne of experience, that I thought I should direct attention: Thesis Films, Advisors, and Students...Oh My! David's book Your Career in Animation: How to Survive and Thrive (Amazon UK link) is worth the read in this regard. Lifting a line from the blog entry: "I think many animation students are shocked by how much work it takes to make a film."
