ACP 72: Double trouble

Apr 17

Animation Conversation Biweekly logo

Another week, another cast. Podcast that is.

The ACP podcast is presented by our dream team: Will Ashurst and Erlend Dal Sakshaug.

So this week was Frame by Frame 9 in Oslo, and we got to see two great animated 2D features on the big screen. 35mm and all. That doesn’t happen every week, and we are so glad to be able to cover it. Thanks to everyone who showed up to support norwegian animation, and Hi(!) to everyone we met at the after party.

ACP 69: The Paul Dutton interview.

Feb 17

Interview with Paul Dutton, The Illusionist

Interview with Paul Dutton, REPOST.

This weeks ACP podcast is presented by: Will Ashurst, Morten Øverlie and Erlend Dal Sakshaug.

No regular scheduled show this week, but no worries, cause we have a special treat for you: This fall, at FAF 2010 we sat down with assistant director and animation director on The Illusionist, Paul Dutton. All though jet-lagged, Paul was very forthcoming and talkative on the subject of making The Illusionist together with Sylvain Chomet.

Thanks to Paul Dutton for doing the interview, and to The Fredrikstad Animation Festival for supplying a room for us to do our interviews.

We will be back in a couple of weeks, hopefully with the regularly scheduled biweekly news-show.

Enjoy the show!
