Two Sheridan teams won second and third place in the 24 HOUR FILM CONTEST held last Friday, October 2, beginning at 8 pm and concluding at 8 pm 24 hours later.  An additional two Sheridan teams placed in the top ten, resulting in the best overall performance among the 22 schools participating.  The contest, sponsored by Cal State University in Long Beach, California, drew participants from across the United States, Canada and Australia.

Organized by Cal State professor Aubry Mintz, the student teams were tasked with creating a 30-second film based on the following theme:  “Imagine if technology was introduced at the dawn of humankind.”

The second place winning team was Oxozone Children, who won for their film FISHTOPIA.  The team was comprised of team leader Ruby Xia, along with Tale Do, Mauricio Castano, Airin Budiman, and Ruby Poon, all second year students.
