In our 67th podcast we interviewed iAnimate Feature animation alumni and DreamWorks Animation Supervising Animator, Ravi Kamble Govind. Ravi was one of our first students to attend iAnimate and one of our first graduating classes. It has been remarkable to follow his growth and success since graduating. Since graduating, Ravi has worked on many feature films and commercials. Ravi worked on the feature film 'The Penguins of Madagascar' where he was promoted as character lead on the octopus villain "Dave" and was nominated for an Annie. He served as a character developer on the 'Detective Pikachu' movie, and has acted as one of the Supervising Animators on both the upcoming Abominable movie and Boss Baby 2 feature. Ravi is both passionate as well as humble about his craft, which made for a fun and informative interview.
In this podcast we interviewed two iAnimate feature animation alumni, Steven Johnson and Humberto Rosa, who worked on the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. This was Steven's first animated feature and a first for Humberto as a lead animator. So it was a great opportunity to catch up with some of our alumni, talk about an amazing film, and from unique perspectives.
Watch this fun short some of our instructors and alumni worked on. "Coin Operated" is an award-winning 5 minute animated short film that spans 70 years in the life of one naive explorer. This film was proudly made by independent artists.
We love seeing and sharing what our alumni have been up to. Roy Stein, one of our many talented Feature Alumni, recently released a collection of shots he animated on Blue Sky Studios film "Ferdinand", and they look great! Check it out.
