Gavin Brown '14 Wins Accolades for Short Film

Gavin Brown '14 has turned his Pacific University senior project into a critical success.

Brown's short animated film "Coffee and a Bagel" was named Best Animation Short Short at the 2014 Eugene International Film Festival. The festival draws submissions from filmmakers around the world, from Australia to Austria, Peru to Russia.

"Coffee and a Bagel" is a 3D computer animation film that features an elderly recently widowed man venturing online. It was inspired by Brown's observation of people in an Internet cafe while he was studying abroad.

He completed the film as his senior capstone project while majoring in film and video at Pacific. Since graduation, he has done freelance work as a video production manager and editor. He currently is photo and video editor for a local realty company and a video editing and motion graphics intern for the Portland Trail Blazers.
