Guests: Kelly Loosli, professor of animation at BYU and director of the Center for Animation. You can see previous animated shorts from the center at studentfilms.byu.edu Garrett Hoyos, a senior in BYU’s animation program and director of the award-winning short film “Ram’s Horn” Hollywood’s animation houses—Pixar, Dreamworks, Disney—find themselves turning increasingly to an unlikely source for new talent: Provo, Utah.  Short films from BYU’s Center for Animation consistently win student Emmy and Oscar Awards. Pixar President Ed Catmull has visited the campus twice in recent years, praising the talent and work ethic of BYU’s animation students. Their latest winning entry is a comedic short about a cocky mountaineer squaring off against an unexpected rival in his quest toward the peak of a daunting mountain. It has a decidedly “Looney Toons” feel. If Wile E. Coyote suddenly scrambled into the picture, you wouldn’t be surprised at all.  “Ram’s Horn” is the name of the Emmy-winning short film.
