In our last podcast, we spoke with Bobby Beck (CEO and Creative Crusader to both Artella and Animation Mentor) when the Artella short film “Duel” was about to open the CTN animation conference.

In this episode, 5 Animators of Duel (Scott, Zee, Tomoyo, Sergey, and Zach) share what it was like to virtually collaborate together around the world on that short. They all have varied levels of animation experience and come from varied backgrounds. But all of them found common ground as Animation Mentor Alumni, and in the passion for great art.

Check out the short, each animators reel from the podcast and what was mentioned in the episode below.
