AMAZING workshops today! Thanks to the ever lovely Elena Day for her Power Play workshop. God I adore her, and let me just say this here, she is incredible to watch and work with! LEARNED A TON!

What a wonderful workshop with Elena Day! Having the opportunity to play, connect with, and challenge my colleagues gave our group a breath of fresh air. A few hours to gain tools and inspiration and it seemed like it was just the tip of the iceberg...I felt like Elena had endless material to offer.

I love Elena's approach to performance/theater/presence/interaction/play and ALWAYS learn A TON from her.

Acting for Animators
Elena Day was incredibly helpful in determining motivations behind characters, frame isolation, and the interaction between a character and their audience. Her ideas, particularly about isolating movements one by one, as opposed to a fluid stream of animation was very useful in determining how to keep motivation and plot progression clear. This paragraph is awful but I promise I learned things.
