Haven't listened in AGES because of final exams, feels so good to finally come back and listen to you guys again, great episode!
Welcome back! Hope your exams went well
God I love the art style of that french film, I think I just get a hard on for painted backgrounds haha.
Honestly, I think that's what I liked most about the film... the backgrounds. Thanks for the comment & the listen! (=
People getting mad about disney reusing a dance confuses me, why don't they get mad at the beatles for reusing chord progressions or mad at ferrari for barely changing the designs between models.
I feel like most of it is just shock that they hadn't noticed it which somehow gets converted to anger.
For every negative thought there's many positive thoughts but the negative are easier to notice unfortunately. This episode kinda helped me blow off some steam to be honest haha
oh you have no idea how glad that makes me haha i really don't want to put out a negative show but this is what came out. and i agree about your comparison with the beatles or ferrari, it does seem to just be surprise about "wait this isn't what i thought it was supposed to be" to "everything is a lie" to "RRRRRRAAAAAAAGE" haha
thanks for the comment and i'm glad we could help you blow off some steam! (=
YAY Pat is back!!
28:54 had my crying XD
also on the topic of distribution I feel like newgrounds is great if you want feedback on the actual animation and technique as most people on here are artists too but if you don't just want advice and actually want to show your work online then vimeo for sure is the place I'd choose
and HEY NEWROUNDS REPRESENT!!
haha it's fun having Pat on as the non-animator specifically BECAUSE of moments like that! Sometimes you forget how weird the terms and sentences are when talking about technical animation
And I totally agree about Newgrounds, that is something I didn't mention on this episode but I believe Rob has brought it up before that with every negative comment for the sake of negativity there's like 10 others that really watch and give a thoughtful critique on everything from content to the execution which is awesome! definitely don't get that on YouTube and the community on Vimeo isn't as active... Newgrounds is a special place and has been for a long time
Rob getting tongue tied from "Active and passive procrastination" cracked me up so hard.
Also as an aspiring animator I'm begining to understand some of the problems with being a creative.
I think most of it comes from the fact that creatives can understand that 'non-creatives' put in a lot of hard work and effort into what they do and creatives respect that but 'non-creatives' often find it hard to understand that creatives also put in a lot of work and just because creatives enjoy what they do doesn't mean its an easy job.
Yea it's weird the way that works. At this moment in history, art as a career is not really something that's seen as 'legit.' At least not 2 legit 2 quit (I couldn't help myself). But while everyone just innately knows that "normal" careers are work and what kind of work it is an the effect that takes on a person... not everyone has that same visceral knowledge of being an artist. People think that because they drew pictures as a child that my job isn't work. But just because I built things out of LEGO when I was little doesn't mean an engineer's job isn't work. It just... the association of implied serious work flows upward from "creative" jobs to everything else and not back down. Hopefully this episode helped articulate some of that so it CAN flow back
So glad you soldiered through the migraine Stephen, great show!
I crashed HARD afterward haha but your comment/support makes it worth it! Glad you enjoyed the show
