JAY SANDERS FILM SERIES: JOHN POMEROY, ANIMATOR
Each year, the Jay Sanders Film Series brings a film professional to campus to screen her or his work and guide students in the artistry and industry of filmmaking. The 2015 guest filmmaker for the Jay Sanders Film Series will be John Pomeroy, an animator who has worked on many popular animated features, including The Rescuers, Pocahontas, Curious George, The Simpsons Movie, and Planes.
The Jay Sanders Film Festival was founded in 1998 to honor the late Professor Emeritus Jay Sanders, who initiated film studies at Auburn University in the mid-1950s. The inauguration of the series occurred in 2013, when organizers added networking opportunities for students in the filmmaking classes to the film screenings. The filmmaker visit is sponsored by the School of Communication and Journalism and JCSM.
