Title is a link to the podcast.
Tom Racine questions Jeff ....
[t’s time to talk to Jeff Ranjo, story artist at Disney, and John Sanford, story artist at Dreamworks…between them, over 30 years of animation experience, having worked on films like “Surf’s Up,” “Mulan,” “Chicken Little” and “Home on the Range.” John also does the brilliant webcomic “Chippy and Loopus.” We did a great show about animated films in general back on Episode 25, talking about our favorite and not-so-favorite films and TV shows.

When does character design start, and what does it take to become a character designer? How long does the process take? How is scripting done? When is music added?...and more]
