The Room Hits 1 Million Views on YouTube

By VFS Web Team, on November 26, 2010

3D Animation & Visual Effects grad Christian Smith must have been excited to wake up to the news today; early this morning his VFS student short, The Room, cracked 1 million views on YouTube!
Currently working in Brazilian television as an Animator and Generalist, Christian is obviously quite happy with the exposure his work has been receiving:
"It does feel great when such a huge amount of people get to see one's work," Christian says. "It means they relate to it in a way, which I think is the best reward an artist can have."
After The Room was first uploaded to VFS's YouTube channel in August of 2008, it took less than a month to reach 100,000 views and was subsequently featured in YouTube's worldwide Animation category. It has kept growing in popularity since then and we're very much looking forward to the next milestone. 2 million?
