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 Barns Alien Abductee Theater: War of
the Worlds, co-produced with Hollywoods 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
