16th Annual Friends of Max Kolb Telethon
The Max Kolb Telethon is a 90 minute broadcast produced by Hofstra University television production students, raising money for a film program scholarship in the name of Max Kolb, a former student who was lost his life in 2002. The annual show traditionally features live musical acts, interviews with filmmakers, and much more. Since its first airing, the Telethon has raised more than $75,000 thanks to the dedication of the program’s student producers and donors.
The program’s CG animated opening was created to showcase the Telethon’s 2017 show theme of “Award Show”. It was designed in combination between Autodesk Maya and Adobe After Effects.
