The Offering is an award-winning short animated film created in almost two years by a group of very dedicated Cogswell College (www.cogswell.edu) students. Since it's completion in 2010, The Offering has screened at over thirty international film festivals and been proclaimed as an amazing piece of art and cinema. The Offering's production value is so high and comparable to Hollywood films that it has never had to enter a student film festival to garner wins. Since it's completion nearly every Alumni that worked on the film is employed in their area of expertise.
The film is loosely based on the love story of the Hindu gods Shiva and Parvati. The Offering was the pilot film for what has become Project X and has served as a great test bed for what was actually possible at an animation school. The latest Hollywood animation production techniques and software were used to create the groundbreaking characters, environments and effects. It pushed the boundaries for student level work and to most experts it appears as a professional level piece.
The Offering was completed as part of a animation production class called Project X that is offered at Cogswell. The writer and director Michael Zachary Huber is an industry veteran that has worked on many Hollywood blockbusters. The soundtrack for the film was created by Jeremy Soule and Jeff Miyahara. Jeremy is the legendary composer that created the Skyrim soundtrack as well as other Elder Scrolls games and more. Another amazing source of help was choreographer, Reshma Gajar, who has done work for several big name celebrities including Madonna
