+FILMMAKER IS SCHEDULED TO BE IN ATTENDANCE

A batch of newborn chicks take their first tentative steps in the warm glow of a laboratory incubator. When one chick is too weak to escape the confines of his egg, he is unceremoniously thrown out with the trash and coincidentally given a second chance at life.

Joshua Jones
Joshua Jones is an animator, film maker, and assistant professor at DePaul University’s School of Cinema and Interactive Media. He received a BFA from Syracuse University in Computer Graphic Arts, and an MFA in Animation from The University of Southern California where he created the student Academy Award-Nominated film 'A Short Lifetime's Poem of Memory.'

As a stop motion animator at Will Vinton Studios, Jones animated on 8 episodes of the 3 time Emmy award winning show “The PJ's,” and the 2 time Emmy award winning UPN show “Gary and Mike.” Following his stint as a puppeteer, Jones found renewed interest in his electronic roots, and went on to work as a CG animator in feature film and television. Studios and clients he animated for include Fox TV, Fox Kids, Warner Brothers, Crystal Sky, Creative Visual EFX, Skyler Animation Studios, Oregon Public Broadcasting and National Geographic. His credits on independent films include Todd Kurtzman's 'Spin Cycle,' which screened internationally at the Melbourne International Film Festival and the London International Animation Festival. His most recent work is as the Director of the 3D animated film “Make It A Great Day,” a project that began as part of DePaul University’s Project Bluelight and then continued on as a 2 ½ year online collaborative endeavor between faculty and students.
