The industry has found a new breed of employee in Utah. One recruiter from Sony Animation Pictures described the typical B.Y.U. grad as perhaps not as talented artistically as students from the other premier schools, like CalArts, but equipped with “a different mind-set.” In most animation programs, each student leads production on his or her own film. But at B.Y.U., everyone works as a team on a single film because, unlike at art schools, students are too busy with religion courses and other requirements to be full-time filmmakers. Out of necessity, production on each year’s film winds up mirroring the way the industry actually works. B.Y.U. students emerge committed to a specialty and to collaboration — prepared for an entry-level job rather than expecting to be treated as visionary auteurs.
