Welcome to the SAL page!  The Student Animation League (SAL) is a student organization which coordinates events for students studying in the Animation Area.  These include guest lectures, screenings, drawing exercises, and more.  We also forward opportunities to our subscriber list, aiding students in finding collaboration for their films.


SAL also organizes, with great support from the staff and faculty of the Animation Area, the annual Spring Animation Showcase, which displays a variety of student work, including a collection of animated films from that year's Intro, Intermediate, Experimental, and Advanced Animation production classes.


SAL's current board consists of President Lotty Vigue, Vice President Helen Li, Secretary Nora Zubizarreta, Treasurer Steven Goehrig, and Social Media Manager Tom Fields.  

Please continue to scroll through this page for more information on future events and the Animation Showcase.  You can follow the Student Animation League on Facebook at:  https://www.facebook.com/nyusal.
