Akira Williams Animation
Anticipated Graduation Date: May 2020

About Me

Hello, I am Akira Williams. I come from Saint Louis, Missouri and I’m a freshman Animation major. My dream as an animator is to create animated movies or television shows for the pre-teen to adult demographic. I realized this dream after seeing the lack of great television shows and movies for people in my age group. Since I do want to create mature content, my dream job would be to work at Adult Swim or Comedy Central. Even though this is my dream, I wouldn’t mind doing work for children's television. If I were to work for a company that creates children's media, I would choose to work for DreamWorks, Laika or CartoonNetwork. All in all, I hope to be able to make content that will entertain an audience, and possible uplift or inspire them in their everyday lives.

Vs Pinball is a competitive, 1-on-1 virtual pinball game on the touch table. The game features three themed boards: Arabian Nights, Celtic Tales, and Cloud Town. Each board features unique obstacles and power ups - special abilities that activate for whichever player grabs the disc first. Players on either side use virtual buttons to trigger the flippers to hurl the ball at each other. Win the game by scoring the most points before the 90-second timer runs out. All participants will receive a prize at the end of the game.
