Penn State Abington student Andy Vo earned the 2016 Bertha Lear Award for New Media. He crafted 'The Dove' for an exercise in integrating a modeled environment with a simple rigged character. "The challenges of modeling, lighting, camera motion, video overdub, and other technical flourishes aren't considered attainable in a first animation project but not for Andy," H. John Thompson, art faculty, said. "He leapfrogged this simple project into a legitimate and fully-formed narrative."
