A couple of things:
First: Yes indeed we're back and we're starting off with fireworks!
The Atlanta Animation Workshop will be having a special double June session.
We will be meeting on Sunday, June 1 and again on Sunday, June 8. The reason?
Jai Husband, the Senior Animation Director at Turner Studios, will be
putting on an Acting Workshop for Animators. To quote:
"This workshop will introduce those in the animation discipline to the
basic vocabulary and process of classical theater preparation for
actors. It will relate practical stage performance to the specific
craft of character animation."
In addition to his credentials as an animator, Jai minored in acting
and playwriting during his undergraduate days at Morehouse and has
since been active in the Metro-Atlanta theater community as
playwright, director, producer, actor, and choreographer. Mr. Husband
also served as the Artistic Director of Class Act Theater in Marietta
from 2004 to 2006.
You really can't afford to miss this and those of you that have been
in the Eagle's Nest at Manuel's know that there will be limited
seating (and standing).
"The Atlanta Animation Workshop holds a monthly meeting for animators
of all walks; professionals, amateurs, and students.
We share our work with each other for praise and criticism and just
generally talk shop.
