Congratulations to everyone involved in the documentary “Building a Basilica,” on winning the Videographer Award of Excellence – Documentary, the highest award given in the category!

Commissioned by Daybreak TV and released this past winter, the film included 3D and 2D animation segments which Villa animation professor Sarah Hanson and her team created for the documentary.

The team included professor Justin Scricco, former professor Jone Cone, and Valery Amborski ‘14, Andrew Tomaka ‘14, and James Lang ‘14. Way to go!

As a Buffalo design student, with my roots in this city, I feel fortunate to have had an internship here at Block Club. With their hometown pride and wanting better for our city it was great to work somewhere where I could participate on projects that were going to affect Buffalo on its upward journey. Block Club opened my eyes more to what a positive turn we have taken and I found it inspiring that they are so dedicated to the come back of Buffalo.
Graduating in a year from Villa Maria, both my professors and the people I have meet in Buffalo’s creative community have helped me to grow as a designer. While Villa helped me to learn about principles, history and programs, Block Club has added teamwork, client relations, production and refining my skills. As someone just breaking into the industry, both have helped push me to prepare myself for what the future holds for me as a designer.
I am excited to stay in this city and be part of making it the better Buffalo we are working towards. The more I put myself out there the more I see what a positive impact the creative community is having around town and am exciting that I will be able to continue to help make our city grow.
