I am super proud of all my animation crew and especially my iAnimate students hitting the ground running. Proof that all the hard work they put into their workshops paid off. Why do we hire iAnimate students? The reason is super simple, they prove time and time again that they know how to animate, can work as a team, address notes super quickly, and have no ego. Coming to work with these guys everyday makes me very proud, keep up the great work everyone. You are representing yourselves very well.

In our 21st podcast, we get not one, not two, but three DreamWorks animators to discuss their work on DreamWorks' latest release, Turbo. They share some great insight on the challenges of animating charaters without appendages and many of the other attributes animators would normally use for acting. And how they adjust their workflow under crunch, and different types of directors. We were also able to have them answer questions from some of you, our community. Listen to Chris Kirshbaum, Luke Randall, and Dave Hardin, with guest co-host Jason Ryan, as they discuss animation.
