"Their short animated film, “Stowaway” was nominated for a student Emmy for Best Animation, and the winner will be announced next month at the College Television Awards." from

Students from the BYU Animation Program received 4 of the 16 nominations, more than any other school.

"Stowaway writer and director Tyler Briscoe says he wasn’t even planning on attending BYU. After his mission to Vancouver, B.C., he moved to Provo just to wait for an acceptance letter at NYU’s renowned film school. But while he waited, he enrolled in prerequisite classes for BYU’s animation program, and, as he told Deseret News, he felt hooked on animation and spiritually guided to the right place with the right people." from
