Victoria Van Patten (Film/Video BFA 16), a graduate of the Experimental Animation Program, passed away on April 24, 2020. 

A recent transplant to Austin, Texas, Van Patten worked as a content producer at Sysco Labs. In addition, her freelance work included design, video graphics, photo editing, and illustration.

Ego, Van Patten’s first film created at CalArts, featured live-action shadow puppetry and 2D animation. She also made puppets—creating a replica paper puppet for an exhibit for the American Museum of Natural History.
