Meet Ms. Maddy!

Since the Glovebox Short film and Animation Festival is coming up fast (62 days away, umm, yes we are counting - who isn't?) and submissions are closing April 20th, we thought we would start to introduce our amazing judges. We are very excited to have this crew on board. Over the next week you will see posts on each and every one of them, its a party of five, your honor.
