Between the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters, the ECU Animation Club posted a call for animators to participate in the University's first ever student-led anijam. Animators were given a one-month period, from mid-January to mid-February, to individually or collaboratively create 8 seconds of animation for a predetermined song. A total of 19 students participated in the making of aniJAM! 2018. The completed project launched March 9th, 2018, celebrating the club's first real collaborative success.
Simply (and suitably) named aniJAM! 2018, the anijam is the first in its series and second major project as part of a club initiative to create more opportunities for creation and collaboration within the Emily Carr animation community. With a mix of 2D and 3D animators, this year's aniJAM! features the talent of students across all years of the animation discipline.
