In this episode we talk with Simon Unger, lead animator at Robotoki. We talk about his experience in the game industry, the differences of working on a franchise like Hitman versus a brand new IP, and the purpose of motion-capture as a tool rather and end product.

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.

In our 20th podcast, we snag some time with Weta and DreamWorks animator, as well as an iAnimate creature workshop lecturer, Jalil Sadool. Jalil is a very talented artist who has animated heavy acting scenes with Jack on Rise of the Guardians, and a whole host of creatures from Aslan on the Chronicles of Narnia, apes on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and banshees on Avatar. He's currently working on How To Train Your Dragon 2 at DreamWorks. This was recorded shortly after his GDC lecture back in April, which was titled "Making it Believeable." Enjoy the podcast!
