The Creative Media Industries Institute at Georgia State University hosted the inaugural US round of the Reallusion ASIAGRAPH 48hr Animation Jam, held June 29-July 1.

The participating students represented Georgia State University, Savannah College of Art and Design and Interns and recent grads that are now working with Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.

Participants animated, rendered and produced at least 1 minute and up to 5 minutes of footage.

Each team was required to utilize a Reallusion tool or solution in their final projects and each captured or animated all characters with iClone.  

48hrs of animation and teamwork were necessary to be the team to go to Taiwan and compete in the final round and the 2018 local US round winner will be representing North America for the first time ever in this event.

Here are the winners ...
