The video you see below is the culmination of two years of intense vocational training in the Digital Design Graphics Technology (DDGT) program at Napa Valley College. Our team of four labored for 18 weeks to create this project, the summation hundreds of hours of training and countless hours of effort. The DDGT program is an Autodesk Authorized Training Center (ATC). Because of this, our team used mainly Autodesk products while cteating Stoppable, along with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. The DDGT program offers courses in drafting, 3d modeling, animation, video editing, composition, graphic manipulation and creation, and web design.

The train even sports a cowbell in homage to the 2000 Saturday Night Live skit involving the song "Don't Fear the Reaper" by the Blue Oyster Cult.
