May was fun

Well, the month of May has come and gone with the launch of The Animation Podcast. I have to send out a BIG thank you to Andreas Deja for being my first guest. He was the perfect choice for many reasons, but I think most of all for his unabashed enthusiasm for animation. What a [...]

Principles of Animation – Planning

From time to time between ‘casts (believe me, it’s a lot faster to write than to cut a show) I’ve decided to start posting some animation notes I’ve collected/written for myself over the years. I won’t commit to how often or in-depth this will be, but it’s better than a poke in the eye with [...]

Show 003 – Andreas Deja, Part Three

It’s Deja vu all over again. The last installment of my first (but hopefully not the last) meeting with Andreas Deja is here. Hear his thoughts on his own work, as well as his friendship with animation legend Milt Kahl. CORRECTION: At the end I say meant to say, “This conlcudes Part Three,” not part [...]

I’m still here

Hey everybody, I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth, just been busy. I’m here to let you know that I’m working on Show 3, and doing more interviewing in the meantime, so look for the last Andreas Deja segment this week. If you want the shows faster, someone needs to pay me enough [...]

Show Notes are coming

I’ve added Show Notes to Show 1: Andreas Deja, Part One. It’s not too much, but there are some links to maps and external sites that provide some more info where applicable (and easy to find online ). I’ll see how it goes, timewise, to determine if I can continue this with each show. I’ll [...]

Show 002 – Andreas Deja, Part Two

The conversation with Andreas Deja continues. In part two Andreas recounts his first years at Disney including working with Tim Burton on The Black Cauldron and Richard Williams on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Get it here: Show 2: Andreas Deja, Part Two (11.9MB, 17:16 minutes) Continue for Show Notes… Tweet

Joe Grant has passed away

Right now I am shattered. I just received an email stating that animation legend Joe Grant passed away today. I had talked to him last week about meeting for an interview. We said it would maybe happen this week. Things came up and we didn’t get together. I sent an email last night saying we [...]

DVDTalk.com interview with Brad Bird

While I’m working on getting Show 2 ready, I thought I’d pass along this link to a Brad Bird interview conducted by DVDTalk.com from March of this year. It’s not mine, but it is about animation. You can expect Show 2 from me on Saturday. Click here for the link. Tweet

Bang the drum! We’re in the top 50, 40, 30, 20!

Now, I’m new to this whole podcasting thing so I want to explore all the experiences it has to offer. That’s why I’ve been asking you, my gracious audience, to show your support and cast a vote for The Animation Podcast at Podcast Alley. Well, you’ve answered the call and about five minutes ago we [...]

What’s up after three days?

I posted Show 1 on May 1 and the response has been overwhelming. By the end of Tuesday, I’ve had about 1100 first time visitors and over 2500 page loads. I don’t know how that relates to other sites, but for me it is definitely gratifying to see this level of interest in a project [...]
