Jason Harrington's latest film, Breathing In, was included in the "Best of International Films" screening at the Canberra Short Film Festival in Australia and at Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival in Canada this weekend.
Harrington is an assistant professor in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies.
Breathing In is a creation story, comprised of modern takes on ancient myths, images borrowed from religious iconography, and pagan symbolism. It follows the journey of a woman through the stages of creation as symbols morph into worlds and planets are eaten by dragons.
Professor Jason Harrington's recent animated short, Breathing In, was awarded Honorable Mention at the University Film and Video Association's annual conference and juried film competition this summer at Chapman University.
His film was also accepted into the 25th annual Cinefest Sudbury International Film Festival, and will screen there in September.
