Summer Doldrums

One of the reasons for lack of posts these days is production. We are swamped with work here and getting the time to come up with posts on a weekly basis is hard. Also, sorry if I have not been responding to email, but my inbox if so piled up with spam, I can even see anything. I intend to change it soon to clear out everything.

Anyway, classes will be starting again in september, so we will try to start putting some info up. Stephen Gregory and I are really the only two guys keeping this blog going and I know he is busy too. In the mean time, you can send in some possible requests for topics and interviews and who knows, maybe we will anser them. We are still committed to teaching animation, so dont give up on us yet.

Another Stanton Interview!


I sat down for an interview with Nate Stanton, story artist to talk a bit about what he does here and how he got started. Nate has been with Pixar for 10 years and has also worked on such films as James and the Giant Peach. I hope you enjoy this Spline Cast. I will be adding it to iTunes shortly, but right now it lacks the opening and closing remarks and music background. I really wanted to get this up as soon as possible. I am posting an m4a file.

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. We all have been really busy, and haven't had much time to create content for the posts, with that said stay tuned. Dr. Gordon has something really cool to post in the next couple of days.
