So, The Killers do an annual charity single every Christmas, and this year they asked the Animation and the Film program at the Brigham Young University to pull together a music video for the 2013 single, “Christmas in LA”. For the 3 weeks that we had, I had the opportunity to work with 30-50 other people directed by our Animation faculty Kelly Loosli to make this video!
This charity single’s purpose is to raise money for Red Project (RED), so everything this song and the video makes will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. And this collaborative project also features Dawes, Owen Wilson, and Harry Dean.
Hope our efforts can help fight AIDS
this was such an inspiring project to work on

Let me just tell you something about this final scene. I sat through this whole movie thoroughly enjoying every last little bit of it. I even made a running motion when the first two gifs happened. When the movie finished my boyfriend was very very quiet and he looked a little sad. I was very confused because it was a fantastic movie. He turned to me and asked “is that suppose to represent how our education system doesn’t make enough accommodations for [mentally] slower students?" Monster’s University was a little deeper than I thought
My brother and I used to watch him all the time… his voice and his mannerisms are so calming!
