Episode 06 – It’s a Small World After All…

A day late but definitely not a buck short, we semi-proudly present Episode 6 of the Reanimators Podcast with special guest, comic book illustrator and senior concept artist at Edge of Reality Kelly Goodine. This week we fire off our usual barrage of first words before we discuss with Kelly "what makes a good character", as suggested by Super Munkyboy...

Episode 12 – Politically In-Correct

Alright, so we didn't make the bi-weekly time line we set up. But a new episode is gracing your face now so you can't be TOO disappointed.

Episode 43 – Talking with the 2014 GDC Bootcampers

TOPIC: GDC 2014 Animation Bootcamp GUESTS: Oh So Many Welcome to the Annual ReAnimators Podcast. Or at least, it feels that way eh? Just like last year, we rounded up all the bootcamp presenters to chat about themselves and their talks. If this doesn't make you want to attend the bootcamp, then you probably don't care about animation. Or games. Or this...

Episode 09.1 – Hot Lunch Extra

Some guy named Mike Jungbluth sent us a message. He thinks we have forgotten about him. Haha, how could we forget about him? Well, I guess I kind of did forget about him because I forgot to add this message to the show last night. So I'm uploading it as an extra so listeners don't have to download the...

This episode...

Episode 19 – The Race is On!

Topic: Race and Ethnicity in Games Guest: Manveer Heir, Game Designer at Raven Software Neither Daylight Savings Time or a case of the common cold keep us from recording this show on time.

Episode 24a – Reanimators World Tour, part 1

Topic: Living and working abroad Guests: Espen Sogn (Ninja Theory), Neil Alphonso (Splash Damage), Aaron Butler (Yager Development) Listener Will du Toit pointed out that as awesome as the ReAnimators Podcast is (paraphrasing), it's been mostly Amero-centric and I have to agree with him.

Episode 18 – Artsy Fartsy

Topic: Art Styles or Art Gimmicks Guest: Shane Corn, animator/artist of Neopets, Cartoon Network, and a founder of DrawingBoard.org Like your valentine's day date, we might be a little late, but we are bearing lots of flowers and chocolates.

Joining us was 2 time reanimators podcast guest Angel Arca. Be sure to listen to our last words this week...

GDC 2016 – Wednesday’s Podcast

In this episode, recorded on the Wednesday of GDC16, we get ten animators in a hotel room and mix in a lot of beer. The result is what made us want to start AnimState in the first place. A way to keep these candid, fun conversations about what we do going all year, not just at a convention. This episode features: Andy...

Episode 32 – Design-imation

TOPIC: Where Game Design and Animation Meet GUEST: Steve Bowler, Lead Combat Designer at Phosphor Games So I guess this time we are Re-Re-RE Animated?!

Keyframe of Mind – Episode 07

Annnnnd we’re back! In this episode (that we sooo totally didn’t record last year), we dive into the artist’s favorite moving goalpost - the concept of “passion”. How do we define this internal motivation, and what does it mean to follow and maintain it? We each share the dangerous side of “doing what you love” and how the concept...

GDC2017 Podcast

At past GDC's, we've tried to record at least a couple of podcasts. It's a testament to the concentration of amazing stuff happening the week of GDC2017 that it was near-impossible for a group of us to find time to sit down and chat. The gang managed to wrangle the handful of folks who were still around on the Friday...
