University of Central Florida is striving to become one of the leaders in animation production education. This pandemic year of graduates from the 2020 and spring 2021 class have contributed to the growth of the school's development. The following video is a replay just under an hour of the premiere held on May 8 2021, of some of the talent coming out of the school's graduating class. Did I mention they did this all while 2020 was pandemic-centric.
