The Best Animated Shorts of 2011!

This past Saturday I went to the ASIFA ATL's Best Animated Shorts of 2011, at the High Museum of Art. I saw lots of awesome animated shorts there, and I met the President of ASIFA ATL, Fatimah Abullah! Fatimah was so cool, and really nice, and she told me they were going to have a kids workshop next year and I'm so excited about it! I also met and was blown away and honored to meet co-creator and series executive producer of Captain Planet, Barbara Pyle! It was so cool to talk to her and she even let me wear her original power of Heart ring that she wore while working on the series! No one else had worn it but her, and I was so thrilled I felt the tingling power when I put it on! She's truly an amazing woman.

I had a great time, and I hope everyone else had a great Saturday as well.
