Jura tells the story of a boy’s curiosity which leads him on an adventure that changes his world.
A team of six students known as Polysquirrel Studios has created Jura as their yearlong senior thesis film in Drexel University’s Animation and Visual Effects Program. They worked under the advisement of award winning computer graphics/visual effects supervisor, John Andrew Berton Jr., who has supervised films such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Men in Black, and The Mummy. With this guidance, and a passion for animation, the students were determined to create an emotional story that everyone, young and old, can enjoy.
