SOAR: An Animated Short

Gold Winner of the 42nd Student Academy Awards: A cross between Miyazaki and Pixar, SOAR is an award-winning 3D animated movie about a young girl who must help a tiny boy pilot fly home before it’s too late.

Soar was created as Alyce Tzue’s thesis project in school. What began as a toil of love by first-time filmmakers ended up catching the eyes of festivals all over the world. Soar is the proud 2015 Gold Winner of the 42nd Student Oscars, Best Student Animation Winner at Palm Springs, Finalist at the Student BAFTAs, and has screened all over the US, France, Canada, Korea, and beyond.

The Soar team is beyond grateful for your support. We believe the film’s surprise success is proof of its message: when you put in everything you’ve got, sometimes you achieve more than you ever expected.

The director Alyce is currently developing similarly fantastical ideas for feature length animation and TV. For more information, please contact Alyce Tzue at
