The Columbus International Film and Video Festival turned to students in CCAD’s Animation Student Collective to help judge the 2014 High School Shorts competition, a new addition to the annual event.

The student judges were asked to to remember their own high school experiences while evaluating the short films.

“We were blown away by the quality of films,” said Animation senior Emma Pennington. “Many had wonderful cinematography and framing, and a few even had animated effects. These students definitely went above and beyond.”

Also serving as student judges were Animation seniors Jacobsen Augenstein, Joshua Hakim, Hillary Hastings, Lizzy Michaels, and Beth Wollman and Cinematic Arts senior Naomi Rossman.

The 2014 Columbus International Film and Video Festival is scheduled for Nov. 13–25 in Columbus, OH.

Pennington is from Hilliard, OH (Hilliard Bradley High School), Augenstein is from New Albany, OH (home schooled), Hakim is from Columbus, OH, Hastings is from Hilliard, OH (Hilliard Darby High School), Michaels is from Hamilton, OH (Hamilton High School), Wollman is from Chapel Hill, NC (Chapel Hill High School), and Rossman is from Fairfield, OH (Fairfield High School).
