The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast

The Bancroft Brothers discuss the ins and outs of being an animator in 2D and in CG. Tom starts by outlining what animation is in its most basic form. Tony adds about the difference between "movement" and "performance" and they both go on to discuss "on the job" examples that were turning points in their animation careers as well as animators that influenced them.

Also, more Q and A from our listeners! But, you really want to stay tuned to the end, where the Bancroft Brothers talk about Tony's experience at an early premiere of Disney's new movie "Big Hero Six" that he attended and his spoiler-free review.
