My WS4… and soon to be WS5 iAnimate Instructor Tal Shwarzman joins me to chat about his time in animation.
A graduate of Sheridan College, who found his way to some to the top studios of our time. Tal talks about his start in animation, finding his feet at Blue Sky, to his days in DreamWorks, working on Monsters V Aliens, Shrek Forever After, Kung Fu Panda 1&2, Raise of the Guardians and How to Train Your Dragon 2. We discuss his workflows, how he handles jumping from one studio’s set up to another and he offers great advise on the difficulties animators face today. We also chat about his passion for the art of animation, his Mentors and how he ‘pays it forward’. I had so much fun recording this one, and smiled all the way through editing it. Tal’s a an amazing teacher with a great sense of you humour, I hope you enjoy the show!
