Alumni Highlights: 'Sammy Psycho' honored

Sammy Psycho: Monster Hunter, a Web cartoon produced by Portland, Maine-based Art Barn, was a finalist in the Best Story category at the 2002 San Francisco Flash™ Film Festival.

Art Barn was founded by Andrew Kessler, Arielle Walrath, Jack Finlin and Dan Edwards, all 1999 graduates of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences.

Each year, tens of thousands of Flash pieces are entered for consideration in the festivals, says Edwards. Last year, Art Barn’s Alien Abductee Theater: War of the Worlds, co-produced with Hollywood’s RKO Pictures, won Best Cartoon at FlashForward2001 in New York City.

Art Barn creates traditional 2D animation and stop-motion clay animation for commercials, music videos, film and the Internet, and has also developed Web sites, design, commercials, and illustration for clients throughout the country, including RKO Pictures and Tupperware.
