Since our time is pressed, and technology seldom behaves the way we expect it to, we'd like to maximize or time together by setting things up ahead of time.
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
1. A Mask: No kidding. :-) Not so much for safety as for the theme. We thought this would be a nice visual element to play with given our theme of "Animating Connections across Social Distances".
2. A Colored Ball or Sphere: Roughly the size of a tennis ball or slightly larger.
3. A Red Object: Something that you can hold in your hand.Something that will “pop” visually on the screen and won’t be too heavy to wield.
4. Post-it Notes and a Sharpie: Paper and tape will do in a pinch
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DAY
The workshop starts at 3pm Eastern Standard Time (EST) in Michigan, US.
Please check what time the workshop will be on your timezone: https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com
At the beginning of the workshop we will review the instructions and give time to orient ourselves but you'll want to review the following steps beforehand.
Once we begin an animation DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR CAMERA or leave the Zoom space! Removing or adding members completely reshuffles the Zoom grid.
Let's start animating!!
