a day well spent
15 of us hopped on the bus and headed to the Oversized Apple to tour animation studios (see below). It was a friendly experience, with familiar alum and studio folk faces at these places, and we all got to catch a glimpse of what the post-school future might look like. Studio owners/founders were welcoming, and not afraid to tell it like it was, in terms of what it's like to run your own place - the highs and lows, the rewards and the costs.
we headed back home just in time to catch the beginning of a little thunder and lightning, our heads filled with visions of Cintiqs and serious adults making cartoons of political bent, kid themes, and overgrown kid stuff.
a cheerful gang, and I hope we all took something from it that will inform our future actions.
