Thursday, August 28th, Mike and I will be joining Phillip Niemeyer of DoubleTriple to speak at a meeting of AfterEffects NY, "an association for professionals and enthusiasts using Adobe After Effects and related software to create imagery for video, film, and other media".
We're going to be showing Germans in the Woods and explaining how the backgrounds, effects and hand drawn animation were layered together in AfterEffects. There will be a Q&A and a little preview of our next film.
ALSO: Special thanks to Brett Thompson and ASIFA-Atlanta for awarding "Germans in the Woods" Best Dramatic Animated Short at this year's Animation Attack! Sounds like a great event, one that I'd love to make it to next year...
Mike and I recently did an interview with Toni Pennacchia of Spoiler Alert Radio (88.1 in Providence). We talked mostly about our work with StoryCorps, and Germans in the Woods in particular. Toni had some great questions! The show aired on August 3rd, but you can find the podcast here. Listen to learn more about what we've been up to, how we got involved with StoryCorps and where we're hoping to go from here.
