It's the Ber months, start of the holidays. The season where most of us is anticipating. And we started September with participating in an event that everybody can enjoy. A week-long activity that helped people understand why Art is for Everyone.
Art for Everyone
"Art for Everyone", with the theme itself shows how all of us can learn and enjoy art. With an event arranged by SM, the exhibit was held from August 27 to September 2 at SM City Cebu Art Center where everyone can appreciate the beauty of art.
Emottoons was invited to be one of the guest speakers to talk about 2D animation pipeline, a process on how animation is created. From pre-production till post-production; showcasing and sharing animation expertise. The talk was held on an open area in the mall where passersby can also listen and learn the steps taken in creating the cartoons that we love watching. What's more fun than learning art and sharing it?
Animahenasyon Festival serves as a venue for Filipino animators to present their world-class ideas, to open doors of oppurtunities, and a chance for them to meet and be inspired by the finest names in the industry.
The event will be held on November and there will be an animation contest. Also, selected animated works from around the world will be shown through partnerships with the different embassies and cultural agencies.

Team Building in Samboan, Cebu
Last July 7-8 was a perfect day for the team to have a very enjoyable weekend. After a very busy schedule, the team headed out to Samboan Cebu to unwind and enjoy the gorgeous nature. One of the places the team went to is Dao Falls where you can see the beautiful rock formations on the way to the falls itself. Ponong Lake was also part of the destination and don't forget the beautiful beaches with very clear waters. The team also built a campfire and created a stronger bond with each other.
It was indeed a memorable weekend. The team did not only enjoy but also saw the nature as references for creating beautiful animation backgrounds. A very fun and productive team building!
