Here it finally is!
The Rusty Animator Podcast is now live. Not long ago the podcast was just one of the many ideas I had for the website. Ever since I’ve been itching to kick things off. Joseph Holmark made that happen by being our first guest.
Joseph is a awesome animator (who would never admit so) that recently wrapped up on Rio 2 at Blue Sky Studios. He’s been on the fast track chasing down dreams – as a really young guy that was a student only a few years ago.
Actually, together we graduated Animation Mentor class #23 and got our first animation jobs together in Singapore at One Animation. Today Joseph’s aiming for Disney and knowing him – its only a matter of time.
There’s more than a few things you can learn from him -so without further delay – hit play! Podcast: Play in new window | Download | Embed
