Too Much GlueTOO MUCH GLUE

Faculty Director Tripp Vroman and Howard Cook

The University of Colorado Denver Digital Animation Center class 2016

Filmmaker in attendance

Although Matty’s art teacher has warned him that too much glue never dries, Matty loves glue. During art class, Matty pours a lake of glue before belly- opping right in the middle and nds himself stuck to the desk. When Matty’s dad arrives at the school, instead of being mad, he celebrates his son’s creativity and calls him a work of art. Too Much Glue is sure to appeal to all children who love to get messy.
