We love watching and sharing what our users are doing with GoAnimate. A particularly delightful video traveled around the GoAnimate office that was created by a father/daughter duo, Jamye and Colt Craig.
At just nine years old, Jamye produced, wrote, and starred in her first animated video with GoAnimate. What started as a school project turned into an empowering tool for the 3rd grader to find her comedic voice.
Welcome to February, the only month in the year dedicated to all aspects of your heart. While Valentine’s Day gets all the love, so to speak, February is also Heart Health month. Heart disease causes more types of death in the United States than all types of cancer combined, so it goes without saying that your heart’s health is pretty important.
Week 4 Final Update: What a great month February was for our hearts. Good things happened– some of our colleagues dropped some weight, a few FitBits came back from the dead and tracked those 10K steps that we achieved, and let’s not forget that a few of us were finally able to do 35 push ups in a row. Ultimately, the Green team was unstoppable and shot out over 200 points ahead of every other team. Here’s to a March where people continue using their standing desks, an April where everyone drinks the recommended amount of water, a June where we continue to get out of the office and enjoy walking meetings, and so on for the rest of the year. GoAnimate was hoping to tally at least 1000 points during the month and we surpassed that immensely with over 1794 points tallied! Go GoAnimate Go!
What’s new in January?
January was a month of fixes for us after some of you wrote in with bug-related issues. The assets with gradient strokes that were not being supported by the HTML5 player are now good to go. Also, the Business Friendly actions with flipped arms/hands/legs issues has been resolved too.
Your feedback is always helpful, please keep it coming!
