Welcome to the 4th season of the Creators Society Animation Podcast. We're thrilled to have made it this far! As you know, our business is changing all the time, rapidly. But that means that there is more to talk about than ever, so we're going to be talking to different people and discussing different topics of change and importance. Today we chat with Sean Charmatz and Peter McCown from DreamWorks about their new film Orion and the Dark, which is out on Netflix. This one is super interesting to me from a few perspectives.

48. Spider Conversing with Mike Lasker, VFX Supervisor on Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
Creators Society Animation Podcast

Today we have a treat as I chat with Mike Lasker of Sony ImageWorks. I don't know about you but I was blown away by Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse - and actually when it finished, I sat there with so many questions - mainly around the theme of 'how the hell did they do that?!' I have long had a fascination with render styles that veered away from realism, playing with toon shaders and compositing techniques in my own work and trying to find new looks that were fresh or different. Of course Sony's recent films have been an explosion of fresh and different, starting with Spider-Man: Into t ..read more

In today's episode we have a conversation with Sandy Wax - a former Discovery, Disney and Sprout executive. Sandy is delightfully curious, and  that curiosity really paved the way for so many things - from her interest in research, to how that ties into content development and marketing and branding - and what led to her becoming CEO of Sprout for over over 10 years.  Branding is something we don't talk enough about, so I loved diving into this with Sandy - and she's had 3 different and major experiences with brand building in our industry that I think we all can learn from. I hope ..read more

46. The Inventor - With Jim Capobianco, Pierre-Luc Granjon and Kat Alioshin
Creators Society Animation Podcast
by

For this episode, we're breaking down The Inventor with an 'Anatomy of an Indie Stop Motion Film'. We first had Jim Capobianco on the show almost two years ago! In that chat, he talked about the stop motion feature project he'd embarked upon. With the Inventor releasing in theatres on Friday, September 15th, we thought doing a deep dive and breaking down how it made it to screen would be a great idea. To do so we were joined by Jim, the film's writer and director (Jim was also Oscar-nominated as co-writer of Ratatouille), Co-Director Pierre-Luc Granjon, and Line Producer Kat Alioshin.  ..read more

44. Kirk DeMicco and Faryn Pearl: Director and Co-Director of DreamWorks Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken
Creators Society Animation Podcast
by
11M ago
In this episode, I got to chat with Kirk DeMicco and Faryn Pearl, the director and co-director of DreamWorks Animation's latest film, Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken. As with most films, what we see onscreen is only part of the story. If you look at the math, Kirk's last directorial project was Vivo, released around 2 years ago, which means Ruby was a sprint from when he came aboard - pun intended.  This film is refreshing in that it's focussed on a young female protagonist, and the entire thread of the story focusses on 3 generations of women - well, kraken women.  The production des ..read more
