Word has reached us that longtime animation industry veteran director Frank Terry has passed away. According to his family:

“….(Frank) passed away on Tuesday, February 11th in the morning.  It was sudden in the sense that his diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis only came 2 1/2 months ago and he had a precipitous decline from Friday, February 7 until he passed on Tuesday”

Frank Terry was the dean of the character animation program at the California Institute of the Arts for 11 years, 1996-2007. During his tenure there, numerous great short films were created and many students emerged from his class and entered the animation industry.
