BFA Design alum Brock Boyts was the grand prize winner for Union Pacific’s “Great Big Rollin’ Railroad” competition in celebration of their 150th Anniversary.  Brock and his wife Nellie created the grand prize winning animation together. Nellie had the opportunity to design the characters and creatures, along with remaking the original song into something that would complement the animation. Brock created, built, and animated the 3D models. Brock and Nellie's Union Pacific animation ad premiered on National Television.
