In the fall of 2007 a small group of animation students at the Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee worked to design characters and develop a story about a young boy struggling to move his cart around a roadblock. This was a simple story that grew larger than the tenure of most students working on it. After the narrative led to a 20 minute animatic, the edits brought it down to ten minutes. The following summer, more classmates joined the original students to finish developing the story, create assets for the production, and start animating the film. At the end of this last school year, they finished a five-year journey taken on as an animation program. The result is the twelve minute short animated film Rock in the Road.
