In the past few days, we have given you an inside look at the second season of Disney Animation’s Short Circuit. The five directors of the short films gave us some behind-the-scenes information about how each of the films came to light. As well as how much they had learned from this experience. With as much talent as there is over at Disney Animation, one of these five maybe a future feature film director.
One animator who has already taken that next step is Zach Parrish. He was part of the first season of the Short Circuit program with his short film, Puddles. Earlier this year, he directed the beautiful short film Us Again that accompanied Raya and the Last Dragon. No doubt that the program helped him prepare to direct Us Again which included very complex choreography. Who will be the next one of these Short Circuit directors to continue to rise?

If you could tell any story with the team of talented artists at Walt Disney Animation Studios, what would you create? Welcome to Short Circuit, an experimental, innovative program where anyone at the Studio can pitch an idea and get selected to create their own short film. Season 2 features five all-new short films.
To learn more about the Short Circuit Program, LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with Jennifer Newfield. She is the Production Manager for Short Circuit.
