Kimberly Knoll and Yung-Han Chang won first place for their animated piece, “No Robots.” The award included a $500 cash prize. Knoll and Chang are students with our animation/illustration program. Here’s a synopsis of their film: “In the not so distant future, a cafe owner has to run a business during a time when robots have resorted to crime as a means of survival. He discriminates against mechanical citizens by segregating himself against robotic kind. However, his beliefs are put to the test when he is confronted with a moral dilemma that could change his life forever.”

Amelia Masters won first and third place awards for her screenplays, “The Percipient” and “The Road to Las Vegas.” A film student, she also received a $500 cash prize. The CSU Media Arts Festival gives talented CSU students studying film, video, and interactive media an opportunity to present their work for critical review for professors and industry leaders.
