Lightning Sprite’s Dan Powwows in Helsinki

Braving Helsinki’s unseasonable snow, Lightning Sprite Media’s Founder and Creative Director, Daniel Bays traveled to the first Animation Powwow of 2017 to deliver keynote presentation:  ‘The Adventures of a Preschool Show Creator’ – sharing tips, tricks, do’s and don’ts and lessons learned the hard way from 13 years working in children’s media development and production.

There was a great turn out – about 80 animation and media professionals and students – and some excellent questions, discussions and feedback.

Huge thanks to tech-giant HP and awesome animation company, Brink Helsinki Oy for sponsorship (and to Jenni from Brink for sorting flights and accommodation) and to brilliant polymath Producer, Nick Dorra for organising and compèring the event and extending the invitation to what was a brilliant event and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
