Harleyquin Workshops - July 21st through July 23rd

Harleyquin Workshops
July 21st - 23rd
Presented by Eva Harley

All are welcome and no registration is required – just come!  Workshops are in voice, so you do need to make sure you can hear voice.  If you prefer not to participate – feel free to come listen!  Listening chairs and class notes provided.

Please arrive early to prepare and slap on your workshop HUD!  So that we can focus, I do close the sim when the workshop starts and usually can’t respond to IMs.

  • Workshops are being broken down into smaller topics, allowing more time for practice and activities during these generally one hour sessions.
  • Select activities will have two additional levels available for those ready for a bit more challenge:  "heat it up" and "the frying pan"
  • For select workshops there will be a half hour "warm-up" session for anyone wanting to review/refresh their skills before the workshop begins.
  • All workshop attendees will be provided links to the tutor notes, now available on the web.  This allows additional images, examples, resources, and updates.  Tutor notes will always include additional tips not covered during the workshop.
  • All Spot On Tools series of workshops are being restarted in the new format.

NEW 2018:  Choreography Designer – Introduction & the Basics

The Spot On Choreography Designer system is a tool to move, rotate, lift, or lower avatars or objects from one point to the next - referred to as waypoints.  Use your stage more effectively by moving your dancers, change the appearance of animations by turning your dancers in a different direction, use this system to move props or even an entire stage during your performance.


NEW 2018:  Performance Director –  The Basics, What is the Performance Director?

An introduction to what the Performance Director can do and how it brings together the power of timed sequences, movers, and more.  This class will focus on exploring the HUD, the structure of the Performance Director Routine notecard, and different aspects of how this tool can be used as the conductor of your performance.

NEW 2018: Spot On Smooth Dancer – Introduction and Putting Your HUD to Work

Geared for anyone new to the Smooth Dancer Animation HUD or still familiarizing themselves.  We will be focused on loading the HUD, playing animations, inviting others to dance and how to remove dancers (including yourself).  We will also cover what to do when your dancers aren't dancing.  This is the first step before moving on to recording your own sequences.
