We extend congratulations to Amy P. Jensen, TMA chair, and Kelly Loosli, Head of the Animation Program, for their successful applications this last fall for full Professor. Both were informed last week that based on the evidence presented in their dossiers, they were both given the final advancement in rank.
You might enjoy some Japanese students’ impressions of our illustrious new Professor Loosli! (They used audio from a real anime show.)
Variety, the top entertainment trade magazine, ran a story last week titled, “Variety’s 10 Documakers To Watch.” Included in the list were our own Brad Barber and Scott Christopherson. The article states: “When Brad Barber accepted the SXSW jury award alongside co-director Scott Christopherson for their documentary Peace Officer, he paid tribute to the late, great Albert Maysies: ‘He said, “You should love your documentary subjects,” and that’s something we try to keep in mind.'” To access the whole article, go to http://variety.com/gallery/documentarians-to-watch-in-2015/#!10/brad-barberscott-christopherson/
