Open House/Graduation/BBQ: The Celebration of Inspiration
A GREAT reminder of why we do what we do.

We have been doing this Animation Mentor thing for awhile now. And we will be the first to tell you … we LOVE every minute of it … especially when you have three magical days like these:

Open House
Friday, July 27, 2012
You could probably imagine that we circle this weekend every year so we can meet each and every one of you. It is the traditional mad assembly of family/friends/fun all rolled into one … and this year was no different. Thank you for bringing your creative energy and positive vibe to our house. Being around all of you is truly inspirational.

2012 Summer Graduation
Saturday, July 28, 2012
The crowd at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: Novellus Theater in San Francisco was still super excited over Student Showcase 2012 — after all, many Showcase shots came from this graduating class. And then enters Andrew Stanton, Oscar-nominated writer and director from Pixar Animation Studios. Stanton passionately addressed our newest graduating class and shared a bit of his story and creative inspirations. In particular, he spoke of how the Animation Mentor community inspires HIM. Uh, wow. To the newest Animation Mentor graduates: Congratulations.

How much fun can we possibly have? Answer: a lot. Fun was the theme of the day as the Animation Mentor faithful celebrated at the Great Meadow at Fort Mason in San Francisco.

Thank You
Every day, we are reminded of why we do what we do. To everyone in our beloved Animation Mentor community: Thank you for inspiring us all.
