QC Student Takes Top Honors at Rarebit Animation Festival

Congratulations to Jadxia Carbajal, Christian Dantzler and Jessica Hong for having work selected to screen in the 2018 Rarebit Animation Festival at Queensborough Community College.  Additionally, the jury awarded Jadxia Carbajal’s film Battery, about her personal experience with Type I Diabetes, the top honor and she took home the 2018 Rarebit Award.

Christian Dantzler’s film, Ruptured, was about learning to love while simultaneously navigating childhood society was created using Flash and Photoshop, as well as some traditional pencil on paper techniques.  Both Christian and Jadxia’s films were two-semester projects in Professor Grella’s ARTS 370 Animated Documentary course.

Jessica Hong’s film Ghost Ice Cream is a humorous yarn about a ghost that is in love with ice cream.  Hong, an upcoming senior, created her film in Professor Cowan’s Intro to Animation course.  She is currently working on a film about irrational fears, to be finished in December.

This was the second year for the Rarebit Animation Festival which takes its name from Dream of the Rarebit Fiend, the innovative and often surreal comic strip by one-time Sheepshead Bay resident Winsor McCay (c.1867-1934). Perhaps best known for his popular strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, McCay was a pioneer in the art of animation–his  cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) was one of the very first animated films ever created.
