A couple of quick links today to some interesting resources of people talking about the film and animation industry.
First is the Creative Talent Network page on Vimeo . All of the videos there are from the CTN Animation Expo. Lots of great guest speakers. Especially liked the Don Bluth and Garry Goldman talk about leaving Disney to set up on their own. Steve Hickners talk is just hilarious.
Second is a website called Speaking of Animation. It has an infrequent podcast but the quality more than makes up for the quantity. There is an interview with Richard Baneham who was animation director on Avatar that is particularly interesting as he discusses in depth the use of performance capture in the film.
