Eva Wang '19 Wins Film Festival

Who knows, maybe someday Hollywood will release an animated motion picture written by Wilbraham & Monson Academy's Zhe "Eva" Wang '19.

Eva won a student short film festival sponsored by The Bing Art Center of Springfield, Massachusetts, in April.

The video, titled "This will be the Greatest Scientific Discovery of Mankind," was two minutes, 47 seconds in length. It used various animated sketch-drawn characters with a predominantly stationary background. The requirements included being 1-5 minutes long while produced on a smartphone.

Eva was accepted and will attend Ringling College of Art and Design, a highly regarded animation school in Sarasota, Florida.


Eva on why she entered the film festival: "Mr. Bloomfield persuaded me to enter. I liked an animation video I made, and Mr. Bloomfield liked a horror video so I entered two videos."

Eva on what she likes about animation videos: "I like drawing and writing and making stories. With animation, you can combine all three."

Eva on winning the film festival: "It's the first time I've won anything. I'm surprised. I didn't expect to win anything."

Mr. Bloomfield on Eva's artist ability: "Eva has a brilliant and creative mind. Her animation work is full of vision, technique and creative choices."
