Hey, Kei! My childhood dream was to be a Disney animator. Unfortunately, I am not skilled in the visual arts, but I have always loved learning about animated films and shorts.
I do not really have a particular favorite icebreaker but some questions I enjoy people are- favorite Disney animated film, favorite musical, their opinion on American cheese, or the coolest place they have been.
Hi Kei and Victoria! I'm also a comedy writer, and it's nice to see that there are more on this site. I agree that humor is the best way to make people comfortable, and that's why my ice breakers always revolve around humor. I usually try to think of a ridiculous would you rather scenario, and I've found that that works well. I also try to throw a compliment in there for good measure.
This conversation instantly caught my eye due to the title, 'Animator in Chicago' which pretty much describes me as well! I'm actually a recent college graduate with my degree in Animation and Illustration, and I've actually made a few short films while I was in college! I love to draw and paint and use my computer. I saw Sarah above mentioned Disney as an ice - breaker and I am all too happy to join in. Cinderella is my favorite 2-d animated film and Tangled is my favorite 3 -d; I love all sorts of cheeses, but pepper jack really takes the cake, and last but not least it is so nice to talk to you all! Hope you're all having a happy fall!
