Ringling College of Art and Design alumni Michael Bidinger and Michelle Kwon have recently made their award-winning animated short, Jinxy Jenkins, Lucky Lou, available online via Vimeo’s streaming service. The short focuses on Jenkins, who is perpetually unlucky and his direct opposite – the eternally lucky Lou as they run into each other and find out how thrilling it can be to change their routines, as they hurtle down the hills of San Francisco in an ice cream cart. You can watch the video below:
Produced by Sarah Kambara, the toon has been honored at the Trinity Animation Festival (Best Picture & Audience Choice Award), Blue Plum Animation Festival (Critic’s Choice Award) and Hamburg Animation Festival (Hamburg Animation Award & Audience Choice Award).
