Turbo interview with DreamWorks animators

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.
