Very Short International Film Festival 2011
Bee My Honey by Melissa Wright and Bar! by Shreyom Ghosh are two animations selected by the Singapore section of the Very
Short International Film Festival. This is the second year that
animations created by ANDA students are part of the selection.
Screenings for the Very Short

the ANDA Spring Show, at Tisch Asia. The joint event was presented by
Zomedia and sponsored by Steinlager Pure Beer.
Two thesis projects completed by ANDA graduates of class 2011 have
been selected by a jury including Eric Khoo, Patrick Smith, Emil Polyak,
Thomas Thesen and Jean-Marc Gauthier. Plant Story by Kai-Sen Chan
and Deadline by Sandhya Prabhat will receive a grant for additional
development and production during the summer 2011. The two graduates

Colleen Cox '10, (M.F.A., Animation and Digital Arts) lives and works in New York
Colleen Cox relocated to Brooklyn and works as an animator for MTV,
Aeropostale, Oddcast, and TAG Creative NY, as well as for independent
filmmakers and small businesses. Her Tisch Asia thesis short, Wrong Number Singapore,
screened at the Brainwash Film Festival at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn
and was programmed but not screened at the European Film Festival in
She has found that, as a rule of thumb for applying for work online,
it takes 40 tries before anyone responds (a hint for the new grads -
don't despair, just create a routine and a pre-written application and
you will be fine). After securing a chunk of change from spring work,
she is using the summer to work on a comic which will be released online
June 15th on her website: http://www.colleenlynnecox.com.
Ayse Suter '10, (M.F.A., Animation and Digital Arts) lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey.
"I think that after graduating, new grads have to take a step back,
aware of their strengths and follow their instincts. After graduating
from Tisch, I had no idea about my next step. During the summer time, I
allowed myself to rest, to go camping and to travel. And at the end of August, I started to do my own things. I wanted to have a space,
something similar to the ANDA lab, where I could think, and work. I
chose Istanbul as my base. I rented a tiny place in the city, started to
expand my art network. Istanbul's art scene is growing very fast, and I
wanted to be part of it. Later, I bought a good desktop computer, a
Wacom tablet, a lightbox, a couch and started to share my art projects
with people from the art scene. Recently, I became a permanent artist in
P & G Art Gallery, one of the accredited art galleries. I am
invited to show my work in June and in September, inside an old Turkish
bath. This is during the time of the Istanbul Biennale. Next year, I
will have my own show, and my installation expenses will be covered by
"I am also doing some stage designs, and animations for event
companies. This is not much of a creativity flow, but working with
corporate companies brings enough money to pay my rent. It has been a
year since I graduated and so far I am happy with my start."
