In our 89th podcast we interview Bungie Senior Sandbox Character Animator, Mike Walling. Before Mike joined Bungie back in 2016, he was an animator at Dreamworks Feature Animation on Kung Fu Panda 2, and Croods. Before coming to Dreamworks Mike worked at Blue Sky Studios on the feature films, Robots, Horton Hears a Who, and Ice Age 3. In 2005 Mike took an opportunity to work at Sony Imageworks as a senior character animator on Open Season and Surf’s Up.

Mike got his start in animation as a Production Assistant on PDI's Antz and Shrek and feels very lucky have been able to work on some great movies throughout his career. It was great chatting with Mike about his career and his move to the games industry.
