Announcing the Winners of the 2018 Texas Central Student Short Film Competition!

Thank you to all of the Texas university students who worked so hard this semester to produce some amazing short films for this contest! We were overwhelmed by the quality of the work on display. From inspirational and heartwarming to funny and quirky, these films truly captured the excitement and enthusiasm that continues to build for the Texas High-Speed Train!

That being said, only three videos could be selected for the top 3 prizes. Winners were selected by a panel of industry professional judges in conjunction with an online voting campaign that ran from November 3rd — 17th. The films were judged in three categories: Animation Excellence, Live Action and Creativity.
