Super Mario Bros Director Aaron Horvath - My Student

It's a blockbuster!

Super Mario Bros has grossed $782,452,239 worldwide as of this writing. After 21 days in release it has remained king of the box office with 3 consecutive weekends at number 1. The film has nearly 60% of total box office revenues. Broke the record for a 5 day release for animated features.

And my student Aaron Horvath directed the movie!

He was a student at my school The Academy Academy in 2002 - 2003. Super talented artist. He was great even then. He went from student to character design instructor and got his break in 2003 with Comedy Central's animation department. He went on to become the Producer / Director / Executive Producer of Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network for many years.

Then came the Super Mario Bros Movie and astonishing success!

Beyond proud!

Great things happen when you Keep Creating!
