Project Description


Stargazer is a sci-fi action animated short about two sisters flying their father’s vehicle, the Stargazer, in an attempt to escape the rule of an oppressive robotic alien regime. The animated short is produced by students in the ATEC Animation Lab.  The lab provides an opportunity for students to take part in a simulated animation studio experience, where a crew of 40 students work over the course of two semesters in assigned roles to write, design, and produced a two-minute CG animated short film.

For more information on the production of Stargazer visit the ATEC Animation and Games website.
