Elliot Cowan is the indie animator and filmmaker behind the new movie “The Stressful Adventures of Boxhead & Roundhead.” We got to talk to him for 2 hours about everything from trends in big-budget animated films, the current state of art schools and the double-edged sword of making a feature-length animated film virtually by yourself. You listeners submitted so many great questions too and we get to all of them! You might be surprised what he thinks about the animation process and the Pixar movies Up and Cars.
Listen for animation mumblecore, “thanks Rob, shutup,” the grumpy animator theme song, how you pronounce Cowan and why it’s that way, and indie animators as home brewers.
