Student Participates in Animation Workshop

THE PRESS DEMOCRAT (SANTA ROSA) -- As a bonus toward the end of Saturday’s workshop, he engaged in an exercise called “The Story Spine” with a volunteer from the audience, Leah Lozano, who studies Art at San Francisco State University.

In a three-minute collaboration, they concocted the story of a lovelorn alley cat who spied — while dumpster diving for morsels of tuna — a beautiful white Persian in the window of a nearby building. After overcoming obstacles, the cats finally got together.

“And the moral of the story?” Luhn asked Lozano.

“Love wins,” she replied, and the room broke into applause.
