Interview with Joel Furtado about what happened to the X-Men Danger Room Protocols fan series – RubberOnion Animation Podcast #140

joel furtado interview xmen game animation and more on episode 140 of the RubberOnion Animation Podcast with Stephen Brooks and Rob Yulfo

INTERVIEW! This week we talk with animator Joel Furtado who most recently created the “X-Men: Danger Room Protocols” animated series which was unceremoniously pulled from YouTube, Vimeo and other destinations due to Marvel copyright claims. We discussed that situation back in episode 109 and now we get to discuss it all with the man himself. He was very open about it and it led into very interesting discussion about fanart vs parody (which we touched on before), the technical aspects of creating CGI Pixel Animation, working in the video game industry and the state of western Canadian animation work.

Be sure to check out Joel Furtado around the internet:
