On Tuesday night I had the absolute joy of hanging out with my former teacher Charles (of Animation Nation fame or infamy depending on who you ask), for Animation Day.
Animation Day is an anual event that Charles and his school put on every April fools day in order to celebrate art, the medium of animation, and to critique the industry. It was absolutely one of the most inspiring events I have been to in a long time. Seeing so many students working on their craft, and mingling was a sight to behold. As a student who is sometimes upset with the things he see's in the industry, I am happy to see that there are many people who are activaly trying to make the animation community a better place.
