The Podcast: Episode 1 with Rusty Gray
After some time in development, I’m proud to announce that today marks the beginning of monthly podcasts here on the Animation Anomaly blog.
This month, my guest is accomplished world-travelling animator Rusty Gray. Currently based in Vancouver, Rusty has studied at Full Sail university and Animation Mentor. He has also launched a website of his own (RustyAnimator.com) that provides plenty of tips and advice to aspiring students and animators.
Although the focus is on education within the animation industry, we discuss a wide range of topics surrounding it from what skills degrees actually provide, to where the future of animation education lies.
Some relevant links from the discussion:
- SAS: The Crisis in Animation Studies
- Michael Bay is the smartest man in movies
- Math in Pixar video
- The Animation Pimpcast with Tom Warburton
- The Modifyers pilot
I’m a bit jittery in this first episode so feel free to provide some feedback either in the comment form below, or via email to charles [at] animationanomaly [dot] com.
