CIA graduate wins two awards

A 2007 graduate of The Cleveland Institute of Art wins two awards from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation.

CLEVELAND - A 2007 graduate of The Cleveland Institute of Art has added two awards from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation to a list of 28 awards he has won for his short film, "When the World Goes Dark." Anthony Paul Scalmato animated the film for his May 2007 BFA (bachelor of fine arts) thesis project at the Institute, where he majored in T.I.M.E.-Digital Arts and minored in Illustration.

The short film placed second in the animation category in the Academy's 29th College Television Awards and won the prestigious Bricker Humanitarian Award of $4,000, the highest monetary award given at the March 15 ceremony at Culver Studios in Los Angeles.

"It was an amazing experience and I will cherish the moments forever," said Scalmato, of Broadview Heights. He credited the strong art foundation and illustration skills he gained at the Institute with allowing him to add emotional intensity to his film.

Craig Klonowski, a Cleveland State University graduate student in music composition, performed the film's music and joined Scalmato at the black-tie awards ceremony.

Known as the "Student Emmys," The College Television Awards recognize excellence in undergraduate and graduate student film/video productions in ten categories: children's programs, comedy, documentary, drama, magazine shows, music composition and best use of music, newscasts, commercials, and animation. This year, the Television Arts & Sciences Foundation received more than 400 entries submitted by 176 colleges and universities nationwide.

Since Scalmato's graduation, his film has screened at film festivals around the world, including Reynolda Film Festival, Humboldt Film Festival and Fort Lauderdale

International Film festival. Scalmato works as an animator for the American Greetings, Corp. website, AG.com. His film's website is http://whentheworldgoesdark.com .

Founded in 1882, The Cleveland Institute of Art is an independent college of art and
design committed to leadership and vision in all forms of visual arts education. The Institute makes enduring contributions to education and extends its programs to the public through gallery exhibits, lectures, a continuing education program and The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, an art and independent film program.
