TOPIC: Animation Inside and Out
Guest: Daniel Floyd, Animator at Pixar Canada and Host of Extra Credits
“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.”
Let’s play a game. Guess why we went months between episodes.
A. We got busy
B. Mike/Ryan/Both moved jobs/homes
C. We couldn’t get our crap together
D. Any of the above
Yes, those are all proper answers.
This episode we talk with Daniel about a Gordon Ramsay for games, handheld devices, free-to-play, animation sharing, story, better character performances, what we have been playing and how much we draw. Damn, it feels good to be back.
Well, back again. again… again.
And if you haven’t checked out Extra Credits before, you really should. It covers some really great topics in an incredibly smart and honest way. It has been on The Escapist and now Penny Arcade, so if you have some how missed it, yet found us, then you use the internet in some weird ways.
