Several Southeast Missouri State University students and an alumna have helped in animating and colorizing the re-telling of the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk” that recently aired in an animated segment in the skit-based comedy show “Late Night Snack” on Tru TV. A Post-Premiere Party is scheduled for 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, in the John and Betty Glenn Convocation Center at the River Campus, where the cartoon will be shown. The piece contains adult content and the public is invited. Freelance graphic artist and animator Kevin Hand was given the task to create this segment, but needed help, so he recruited the help of the SEMO students. He tells KZIM KSIM he was impressed with the talent the students had.
Local talent assisting with the project were Southeast alumni Kari Arnold and Southeast students Ashley Tong, Bridget Bingham, Michelle Pennington, Darrien Miller, Sarah Stock, Molly Doty, and Josh Davitz.
