Holiday party a great success!

Last night we gathered at Stage 3 for a joint Holiday party, celebrating talent, creativity and a shared passion for our community! I was so happy to see so many dear old friends whom I haven’t seen in many years!
The conversations were dripping with ideas, visions and potential! It became obvious that we all share a feeling of destiny.. that our local animation industry is on the verge of something big- mostly because the SEMAFX movers and shakers who hung out in the kitchen last night are willing it so. We have that kind of power… Or at least power of will. We are planning a big 2014, and I encourage you to join SEMAFX on our road to destiny.
Merry Christmas… And we know it’s going to be an amazing New Year!

Let the Sun Shine!

Did you get outside today? It was 80 degrees- and its barely Spring. We didn’t really suffer intense cold this winter, so you would think that this year’s “Spring Fever” would be somewhat less dramatic. But we’ll still get it and act a bit silly and goofy in the warm sunshine!

With this amazing weather comes the natural inclination for our imaginations to simultaneously reminisce about lost summer days- and look ahead to warm weather, trips, grilling out, good times… and better days ahead!

This includes our business. We become Spring Optimists, letting the warmth of the sun bend our moods and intentions in positive directions. We start new projects, reach out with new, innovative marketing drives and retool and refresh our product lines and lists of services.

It’s all good! After all, Spring IS the season to plant seeds, so we can harvest down the road. So plant, prune and plan ahead. Tend the optimist in you and nurture your good will. Improve your skills, too. When the sun is high, all spirits are raised. So celebrate Spring and get ready for a great summer!

I don’t know what the economy will do- or if it will be affected for good or ill because of the weather, but at least our spirits will be renewed in the healing of the sun!

Let it Shine!
