Episode 010: Animation

Who doesn’t like cartoons? Our friend Ethan Hurd has worked as a professional animator on films such as Shrek, Toy Story 2, Madagascar, and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, among many other projects over the last 20 years, plus he’s a teacher and mentor to young artists. We talk about how to earn your place in such a competitive field, the industry shift from 2D to 3D, the difference between drawing and animation, and why “you’ve got to get out of the chair.” We also play a round of You Must Choose, and then Chance Fortran takes a nap.
