TAW Episode 5: Joanna Davidovich interview! Part 2

monkeyrag_still_13

Here it is, part two! Joanna and I talk about her short film Monkey Rag, Kickstarter plans of action, cartoons and the difference between working on paper and digitally. It gets pretty informal at the end and we just chat about life stuff and whatever. And some good news; The Animation Workout is now on iTunes!!

So this will be my last podcast of 2014. I’m not sure when I’ll pick it up again as my life is about to be flip turned upside down in a matter of days when I give birth. Apologies for it getting this episode posted late, seems like the auto publish feature didn’t work.

Happy end of 2014 and start of 2015!

TAW Episode 4: Joanna Davidovich interview! Part 1

monkeyrag_still_03

I was meant to upload this podcast last week on Wednesday November 5 but due to some very sad technical difficulties my first attempt at recording an interview with Joanna didn’t work out. Joanna was very gracious and we did a second recording! We ended up talking about some of the same stuff, a lot of different stuff and for about an hour and a half! Since the interview went on so long I’m going to break it up into 2 parts. So come back in a couple of weeks to the rest of my informal chat with Joanna on November 26!

Coming this Wednesday…. podcast with Pixar’s Deanna Marsigliese!

I recorded the portion of this week’s podcast with Deanna in February 2014 about a week or so before she took off to see the world for a year. Finally I share it online! I didn’t have big plans for the podcast while I was making it but I wanted to grab Deanna for an interview before I wasn’t going to see her for a full year at least. I can’t wait to see all the amazing artwork she’s making on her trip and the photos she’s taking!!! So come back on Wednesday Oct 15 to hear my interview with her!

The Animation Workout Podcast – Episode 2: Show Early, Show Often… When You’re Ready!

This one is about sharing work in progress! A handy thing to do. For some people verbalising a goal or sharing a project when it’s still new leads to feeling the accomplishment of having already “finished” said project. For me, verbalising a goal makes it real for me and makes me feel committed. It’s a good idea for you to figure out when verbalising and sharing your goal is going to really help you to commit to it.

I’m going to post a podcast every three weeks on Wednesdays until November 26 (or until my maternity leave starts, whatever comes first.) So the remaining 2014 podcast dates are: October 15, November 5 and 26.

The Animation Workout – Episode 1: Hello World

TAW_logo_011

It’s my first solo podcast ever! I popped into a conference room at the office I work at early this morning to record it. I chat briefly about what inspired me to start podcasting and where I’d like to go with it. Give it a listen!
