Stanton Part Two

Thanks for all the feedback and comments on the first part of the Andrew Stanton interview. Here is the second part of that interview. I have to say, this one really is great. I've tried to make some changes to the audio. Sorry for the low volume on my end. Enjoy the SplineCast! I'm still trying to figure out how to get these up on Itunes. Look for the third part in a week.

By the way, If anyone wants to help me set up a XML feed or whatever you call it, I'd love to submit these podcast to Itunes. I just dont have the time to figure it out. I'd love some advice on how to do it or a good example file I can use.

Excellent Podcast!! I really enjoyed hearing Andrew Stanton's perspective on storytelling and movie creation. As a software programmer I can relate to the feeling of constantly putting out fires/problems on projects. It's nice to hear that this isn't isolated to just the software development field. Keep up the great work and if possible I would love to hear from other creators at Pixar as well (John Lasseter, Brad Bird).

Thank you! Great interview so far. It's really refreshing to hear how frusterating Mr. Stanton can feel during the process but is kept alive by the hopes of seeing it exist in a finished form on screen.

I'm often discouraged by my frustration during the process, but I guess it's pretty common. And nothing feels better than seeing an audience react to your finished animation which keeps you going.

Thanks for these pod casts! Its really interesting to listen to the back and forth between you and Stanton, on top of the stuff hes letting go.

There is so much great.. gold, to me just hearing how you interact with him during the interview. There are things that he talks about that seem to get you pretty exited, the way we can get when were listenign to any one of you in a class or lecture. its really great to hear that back and forth between the two of you. Its an even more intament peek behind the curtens of your studio is what im tryign to say i guess..

hey andrew, I think it's totally awesome that you guys have got this thing going on, I just found it through the pixarblog. I am seconding the vote here for feeds, this is a thing which should be aggregated so that I can follow it easier.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks again for providing these podcasts. And thanks to Andrew Stanton for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer questions.

Are you seeking questions from listeners? If so, I'm curious to know:

How important is testing Pixar films with audiences and why? And, how many different audiences are involved with testing a film?

Thank you,

- Tom

Great interview. I'd love to hear any interviews from the Pixar crew.

A couple of questions I would like to hear addressed by a Pixarian:

Pixar seems to shy away from casting A-list talent to do voice work. Why?

With Disney's recent purchase of Pixar, what influence will John Lasseter have on Disney live action?

And the million dollar question:

What's the future of 2D animation, and is Pixar going to be a part of it?

That's it. If you can get answers to these questions it would make a very sick little boy very happy...

or just me.

I think iLife '06 makes submitting to iTunes pretty automatic using iWeb. iHaven't checked it out myself but I do believe the functionality is there. I'll poke around and let you know what I find.

Would it be possible to offer a mp3 version of the webcasts? We here at Rhythm and Hues can't seem to open the files on our work boxes.

I really like this interview a lot. Gives me a gleam of hope to hear that even the big dogs had a bit of trouble starting out. Can't wait for part three!

Keep up those fantasic interviews coming. Maybe Brad Bird next? =)

Hey Andrew, Really great stuff from Andrew Stanton! I am loving your splinecasts.

My suggestion for a future spline cast:
Talk to animators from Pixar(or elsewhere) that animated scenes that you Doctors feel are inspiring. But ask specifics about a certain scene. Maybe find out how they decided on certain acting choices, or where they got inspiration for that certain shot. Just find out what made them tick during that time of brilliance when they animated a shot that inspires others.(Hopefully it would be one that we all would know and recognize)

EX: Maybe ask Mr. Sweetland what was going through his mind when planning the "woody coming out of the box shot".

This is so good. Thank you very much for taking the time to do this. Interviewer or interviewe, or however you say it. Theres something really special about this interviews, I dont know what it is, the nice atmosphere, i dont know. keep them comin, please.

How many hours a day does a director in Pixar sleep? How can they make it through such a long procces?

Blogger nickv said...

again, excellent pod cast... Liked to hear the perspective and continuous struggle with cinematography...

perhaps a future interview with Doug Sweetland?

I don't usually comment on blogs and similar, but I felt compelled to say how helpful these podcasts have been for me working on a student project. Andrew Stanton has so many bits of good advice that have really helped me sort out my ideas. Keep up the good work!

Once again, great work man.
I see you took my comment to heart.
Now my only crit would be to turn up the volume of your own mic if possible.
other than that, it's perfect.

Well.. Awesome!!
I liked it all, but the best part was when Mr. Andrew Stanton says the hardest part is to keep excited. I believe this is a problem for all artists. It happens to me when I am planning out my animations. I imagine those poses in my head and go wild acting them, trying to make them better, more appealing. I feel extremely happy when I get what I want and cant stop smiling and making weird faces, triyng to mimic those poses I drew and analyze them. Then I get to the computer and start working pretty good because I am really inspired, I get the poses, I figure the explanations of those movements, etc....but inspiration, whith time, starts lowering , and I feel it, so before loosing it I go for more inspiration, I check what I did, the purpose, maybe seeing it some other way, my thumbnails, or I see animations, artpieces, or shots of movies that may inspire this particular shot. Every animator has his own tricks for inspiring, so I thought that could be a good next post for you interviews, seeing what inspires or excites animators or artist. Example like the house and mansion, with those details that we have to deal with...
Some friends, arquitects, when they get bored, they go play video games or see famous buildings and start distorting them to fit funny designs...
Thanks for the interview.

GReat stuff! Stanton seems to say probably one of the largest truths about the creative process; there are no absolutes.
